who used to love to cuddle up right next to me at night with his sweet little hand on my cheek
making sure that my hand was on his cheek - is 11 years old?????
Please tell me how that happened! Wasn't it just yesterday that we were seriously looking for a "full body helmet" for my
That is NOT is normal nose!! Hehe!
Most days, he still needs a full body helmet...
or maybe even just regular helmet - Charlie! Hint Hint!!

My sweet Charlie, your love of life, and your ability to laugh at yourself, will take you far. Your beautiful soul will take you farther! We love you and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
