Oh man, where do I even begin with Charlie boy! First of, how is he 4 already?!? Yes, I am very aware that I have said that about every child on every birthday so far, and I don't plan on stopping. It boggles my mind everytime.
Charlie is such an adorable, little stinker, and he can charm the pants out of you. Here is a typical Charlie conversation from a couple of weeks ago:
Charlie: "Can I pleeeeaasse have just ONE piece of dried banana?"
Me: "Yes, you can have one."
Charlie, as I'm about to hand him the ONE piece: "Actuallyyyyyy, can I pleeeeaaassse have FOUR pieces, because I'm almost four?" Said with the cutest little dimpled smiled, of course.
Charlie loves playing with his big brothers, and loves helping take care of his little one. He plays soccer with his brothers in a home school soccer group every week, and he is counting down the (many) days until he is old enough to play flag football as well. He loves wrestling, playing with trucks, and eating all the food.
He loves to help me in the kitchen making breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and he is basically an expert egg cracker.
He is goofy, smart, tough and snuggly, He thinks potty talk is the funniest thing ever, much to his mother's dismay. He's always looking to make people laugh. That is unless he's in a mood and gives everyone the death glare instead. He has perfected raising his eyebrows, and knows the best time to use it (like when he's being reprimanded). He is also so stinkin' cute I just can't handle it sometimes.
We literally had 10 minutes to take these pictures before it started raining (and Charlie subsequently started freaking out), but he did not disappoint.
Happy Birthday Charles! We all love you lots!
