Happy Birthday, Charlie!

My baby is four! Where did the past three years go since he's been home??

Charlie has the strongest personality for such a little guy...strong-willed, sweet, stubborn, sensitive, hilarious...all wrapped up into one compact little package. He has accomplished a lot over the past year...started preschool, played his first season of soccer, gained a new big brother and two rabbits, moved into a big boy bed, learned to ride a big boy bike, and today he moved out of his baby carseat and into a booster. He's feeling pretty big right now.

Tonight we took the kids to Build-A-Bear and Charlie chose a turkey...and named him "Turkey." Now he has Turkey and Monkey...not exactly original names, but we won't forget them! After, we went to Macaroni Grill for dinner and they brought out a very chocolate cake for him and icecream for all the kids. Even though he's the big 4, he was still tired, and is now cuddling in bed with Monkey and Turkey.

The finished products!

Good Morning, birthday boy! (He was awake at 6:15 singing "happy birthday to me")

Time to open's only 7AM!

His favorite present? A big boy scooter just like Jacob and Amarin!

So long, baby carseat. I'm a big boy now.
