Happy Birthday Charlie!

27 Sep

Happy 1st Birthday Charlie!

Soon after you were born, your dad and I made a little motto for you-
and us. Be good, be brave, be funny. Be a GOOD person- get in trouble
and get dirty- but be kind. Be adventurous and BRAVE. It often takes
bravery to be a good person and do the right thing. Be FUNNY because
the world is a crazy place and everyone needs a good laugh.

You turned 1 today and you are already all of these things and more.

We love you so much and look forward to watching our good, brave,
funny boy grow. Try to slow it down a little though- this year went
way too fast!

Readers: I recently started following an insanely great blog called Momastery and in August she wrote (much more eloquently) our exact feelings.

    Happy birthday Charlie! I’ll remember being SO excited the entire day waiting for you. I had my class take a poll to see if you were going to be a boy or a girl and waited by my phone for Aunt Dee’s text. The boys were very excited to hear they had won! I hope you had a great day yesterday with your pals and family. Can’t wait to celebrate with you soon! Love you!
