Oh Charlie, I don't know if I have just forgotten how your big brothers were this age or if you really are that much more a mama's boy. The way you look at me melts my heart. At nights while I am in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner your daddy will walk in circles around the house trying to keep you quiet. Every time you pass me your eyes are stuck on me. You strain your neck as he walks away to keep your gaze on me as long as you can.
Sometimes we'll be sitting on the couch. You on daddy's lap at one end and me at the other. Most likely with your brothers next to me fighting over the iPad. I'll glance up from reprimanding them and see you. Your big blue eyes, and an even bigger grin, just staring at me.
I will come home from my little time away at yoga and find you screaming in daddy's (or Grandma's) arms. All it takes to calm you down is to hold you.
I'd be lying if I said it didn't make things a bit stressful at times. You wanting mommy to hold you all day (and night!) long can get tiring. But I am trying to just embrace it. It sure does help that you are so stinkin' adorable!
