Happy Birthday Charlie Bear!

Dear Charlie -

Today you turned 3 years old! You woke up, ran out of the bedroom and climbed into my lap. Your brothers started singing/shouting Happy Birthday and Logan was dancing around. You looked up at me and said "I am Three!"

Yes, yes you are baby girl. How this happened is beyond me. I swear that I just left the hospital with you in a carrier in a tiny white dress with a pink cardigan, size 0-3 months. You were deliciously squishy with a head full of dark hair with glorious golden highlights. Making squeaky noises and holding onto my finger as we drove home in the back seat of Daddy's brand new car. I can still feel the pain in my stomach from my tubal, the hugeness of my boobs that were not fitting well into my bra and the excitement to get home and see the boys interact with their baby sister. Yet, all of this was 3 years ago. Time flies they say. It really does, faster with each child!

Today we are having a play date with your girl friends at Burger King. You are very excited to play and eat a cupcake. Then tonight we are going to Chuck E Cheese as a family for dinner to play and celebrate you. The little girl who has complete us as a family. A fun filled day! Mommy is happy that I have your birthday off, it does not happen very often. Your birthday party is not for another week so we get to continue the celebration!
