Pretend City.

Charlie loves to play dress-up (not the princess type), the pirate, Buzz-Lightyear, firefighter type. He loves to imagine he is all sorts of characters, so what better way to spend his 4th birthday than by going to Pretend City. He had a great time playing with all his cousins on his special day.

Our favorite 4-year-old.

I cannot believe my guy is 4 already. Does a smile get any cuter than this? I love how easy to please Charlie is, so happy about life! We spent his birthday at Pretend City with his cousins and then topped it off with McDonald's nuggets for dinner and ice cream for dessert. He had a great day.

Charlie has been wanting to turn 4 ever since he turned 3!! When we ask him to have 3 more bites of dinner he asks if he could have 4. When we tell him to sit in time-out for 3 minutes he wants 4. He calls the freeway the "fourway." He wants so badly to be big. I got him a pair of shoes that were way too big but he insisted that they fit. He told me that he grew from taking a nap and now his "fast shoes" would fit him.

I love the cuddle moments with Charlie, I often tell him "You are my favorite guy." Then he looks at me with a huge grin; it never gets old. One time, after telling him he was my favorite guy I asked him, "Who's your favorite mommy?" to which he replied "Daddy!" :)

Charlie is one of the happiest kids I know. Everything is his favorite. If I give him a blue spoon with his cereal he thanks me because blue is his favorite color. If I give him an orange fork with dinner he thanks me because orange is his favorite color. Whatever cartoon he watches, shirt he wears, sport he plays... they are all his favorites. Life is good for our Charlie boy and he is definitely our favorite 4 year old!

(4 year old stats: Charlie is 42 inches tall (95%) and weighs 41 pounds (75%). The doctor predicted that he will be 6'2" as an adult. It will be fun to look back at this blog and see if he ends up being right.)

Male bonding.

Charlie adores his daddy-boy and they loved hanging together at the father/son camp-out. I think the night filled with sleeping in tents, roasting hot-dogs, and hangin' with the boys was a success. Cheers to fathers and their sons, too cute!

Can you feel the love?
