That is how long it has been since I gave birth to this squirming, wiggling, little, micro version of Husband. He came out the spitting image of Husband and still looks just like him. About the only "thing" he got from me is a passion for reading and will read anything he can get his hands on.
He has a lot of physical strength and very little coordination. He has a curiosity that is endless and will watch and learn. With some things, he has no fear. With other things (such as powerful storms) he gets a bit fearful and looks for reassurance.
He has taught me more about boys and what it means to be a boy than I ever thought possible. And in some situations, I ever wanted to know. For all the homeschooling and being his mom and guiding him and teaching him, he has taught me just as much if not more about life, patience, love, and God.
Happy birthday to my precious and precocious son. I love you, Charlie.
