Happy 2nd Birthday Charlie

Oh, how the time flies...I am thrilled and saddened that our little Charlie is now 2 years old. He has become such an entertaining little soul who now loves to make you laugh, try your patience and climb everything in sight! As parents, Dave and I are trying to soak up every little bit of him at this age...he loves to wrestle with daddy, get "cozy" with mommy, chase his dog Jack, keep up with his cousins, high-five the seafood guy at Publix and fake-cry to exagerate his ouchies! He really doesn't understand that he has a little sister on the way, but knowing him, he'll have an opinion on the matter! :-)

Charlie had a blast at his party this year (much better than his 1st birthday, where I'm not even sure he smiled!) He wore a train balloon tied to his pants and you could see him bopping all over the place. Even though he got REALLY sick with strep and a double ear infection right after his party, I'm sure he wouldn't trade all the partying for anything! He thought all the presents were "CCOOLL!" and wanted to keep playing so long that he actually fell asleep in daddy's arms in the ballpit in the backyard. Oh, to have the energy of a 2-year-old and the ability to fall asleep anywhere!

He is truly a blessing to our family and are grateful we have been given the opportunity to watch his little life blossom before our eyes.

It was a gorgeous day and they all had a blast. They needed to live it up, because the following day, it was all downhill with strep throat and stomach bugs. ha ha

Cute pics. That was nice that someone took all those photos for you guys.

This is my first time doing this so I hope this works. Just read about Charlie's bump. OH MY GOSH! My heart is in my throat. I felt for you. Shannon had a similar 911 emergency when she was just about 2 yrs. old. I am glad to hear he is back to normal. I miss you guys so much! He is too cute and those eyes still melt my heart! Hope all is well now and give Charlie a big hug for me! Cindy
