Two Years…

Charlie had his two year checkup appointment today. He is 36” tall and weighs 33lbs. The doctor apparently said he was very large, but proportionally so. That’s good, right? He was given a clean bill of health overall. Just in time for his birthday party, he learned to say he was “two” when asked. We almost got him to hold up two fingers, but that proved a little too tricky at the moment. He can also say his first and last name “walwuh” “took” and mommy’s name “melah”. It’s indescribably fascinating to watch his language develop.


We celebrated his second birthday this past Saturday. My parents, Aunt Sarah and Uncle Andy with the kiddos and Charlie’s Godfather Brandon were up to share in the festivities.


I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking…

Unwrapping his first gift. He figured out pretty quick how to get through the wrapping.




…and it’s a backpack. Now he can carry his own stuff around. Is this a present for him or us:).








…and, of course, there is blowing out the candles on the cake. Grandpa helped a little, but that’s what grandpas are for, right?

Happy second birthday to another fine November 2008 model. It's a good batch. :)

Hear! Hear! and what a large batch it is. It was great fun watching him play with his cousins, open presents and begin to speak in words that are more numerous each time we talk or see him. It was adorable watching him name each of us and pronounce our names. He is a wonderful two year old and always ready with the bright and wide smile.
