Last fall you turned 5, one whole hands worth sweet boy, and that always trips me up!! How is it possible that it has been so long since they first laid you on my chest and I heard your sweet little baby cries. You laid on my chest, heart to heart, and while you have continued to grow your whole self still fits easily within my arms and you are still firmly routed in my heart. You are my company keeper, my sweet errand runner, the little guy who doesn’t leave my side. Probably one of my favorite things that you have ever said to me is… “Momma, I love keeping you company. I love when you keep me company. I just love being company and having company!!” and it’s so true. You LOVE when other people are around. You love learning about them, playing with them, hearing about them. You are the first to remember peoples names, what they do, what they did, who belongs to whom. It’s such an incredible talent to be able to relate to and to truly see people and I think you have it. I love having our afternoons together while Jay is still at school and your other brothers nap. You follow me around the house helping with projects, working on stuff with me or just talking to me about stuff. It’s so much fun and probably my favorite thing about you. I am really going to miss you next year when you are in kindergarten and I don’t have as much time with you. Although, you are SO ready to start school. You love preK and constantly ask when you get to start at Brookshire. You are so ready to be one of the big boys just like your older brother
Charlie you mean the world to me. I love watching as you and your brothers grow and become the people the you were always meant to be. Thank you for loving big and with your whole heart. I’m so excited to see what the next year brings for you.
I love you sweet boy!
