4 years

Top Picture: Cat Watson Photography, Bottom Picture: Hoverstad Photography

I blinked, and Charlie became a 4 year old.  Every year, during the week of March 14, I get so emotional thinking about the day that my sweet boy was born.  

Something happened the other day that explains Charlie's personality so well.  Walker was extra tired while eating lunch, and was having a hard time understanding why he had to eat his turkey sandwich before he got his goldfish.  He was being dramatic, and started crying, and I asked Walker if he wanted me to help him eat his lunch.  He gave me a sharp, "No!", and continued to cry.  Charlie touched Walker's shoulder and said, "Do you want me to help you, baby?", and after Walker said yes, he fed Walker his entire lunch.  

Charlie is a peacemaker, a lover, a book worm, a dancer, and will do great, great things in this world.

Here's a little birthday video.

When I told Noel what song I was using, he said "that's way too dramatic for a birthday video." But after I showed him, and turned around to see what he thought, I caught him with tears in his eyes. :)

Happy Birthday to the sweetest 4 year old that ever was.

My son turned 5 yesterday and I can't believe it. I look at my 3 week old baby and realize how fast they grow up. I blinked and Michael was suddenly 5 so I want to make sure I cherish each day with all 3 of my boys.
