And Today, Charlie, You are 4

My Charlie,

You were once just a HOPE.

I prayed for you to come and God answered.

My heart was broken from the loss of 2 before you, but you brought HEALING and JOY.

From a mellow, easy baby, you came to be known as “fun time Charlie" because

You are SO much fun and make everyone around you happy. You have that gift. Your silliness is contagious.

You watch out for your brothers even though they don’t always do the same for you. You’re just that kind of guy.

And even though you are sweet, thin skinned, and our ultimate softy, you have a feisty side that makes me reassured that you will be just fine in life. You will hold your own; I know you will.

So my Charlie, I want you to know on this special day how much I love YOU. You brighten my days and fill our house with laughter.

Happy 4th Birthday, Bubba. I couldn’t love you more.

Much love,

P.S. This last year, you have loved dinosaurs, coloring, fort building, the color red, telling others that Jack is "little", and eating lots of dessert.
