going to the doctor for his 4 year old check up + shots on July 29th but for now, here's a little more about our Charlie bug...

he's 44 pounds and has twenty teeth. 
He's been to the dentist twice already and loves it. 
Not sure his height but he's getting SO TALL!

He loves his big brother more than anything and absolutely idolizes Cade (and cousin Carter). Some days he follows them around like a puppy dog and it's the sweetest thing. I know it may drive them nuts but usually Cade is so sweet to include him and Charlie thinks he's just as grown as all the big boys.

He may look like me , but he acts just like his daddy. He's a morning person, calm cool and collected. A little more reserved, but always killing' us with his funny one liners and random things he says. I love that he calls "pajamas": "KAJAMAS" and I never even try to correct him. 

He is seriously such a sweet child, even though at times he does have quite the temper whew!

Can't wait to see how he likes preschool this Fall and see what all he LEARNS.

Love you my precious angel!

Charlie's Birthday Celebrations!

still can't believe our baby boy is FOUR!!

I had all intentions of throwing him a big pool party this year but then well, life happens and it just snuck up on me. Birthdays around the 4th are tricky, but luckily being in the middle of Summer there's always plenty to do and plenty of ways to celebrate. 

When we found out they were having fireworks at the lake on the 2nd again (random day, but that's on his actual birthday) we knew we would do that. We decided on one fun lake day on Sunday with my side of the fam before my sister's fam left for the beach and then on Charlie's actual birthday we had dinner/cake/fireworks with Chad's family...

Here's a few pics from our pontoon ride / beach picnic at Lake Russell 

"boat hair, don't care..."

On Monday, the boys got haircuts and we took Charlie out to Chuy's for Mexican to celebrate even more. Tuesday, his actual birthday, I left work a little early and picked up pizza + wings and cake to take to Chad's parents which is on the way to the lake!

Aunt Monk made him this cute sign...

I definitely wrote on a Walmart cake and popped some shark fins + star candles on there...

we went over for a sunset cruise and waited for the fireworks to begin...

pics are out of order, but here's some fun party favors I got for the boys + our nephews. most I found at the Dollar Tree or Target dollar spot...

the 3D firework glasses from Target were a big hit!

Love this baby more than he will ever know. He never asks for a thing, just said he wanted a "shark party" and at this age he thinks a "party" is cake, candles and presents...even if it's just with family. 
We had such a fun time! 

Here's to more fun adventures and watching him grow...

Next up, Charlie's 4 Year Old Survey and our 4th of July fun!

"let's go girls..."

Wednesday, July 3, 2019

it was a fun girls afternoon/night to celebrate our friends Beth & Kelly! 
we started out by the pool...

had fun getting ready and listening to Britney (shows our age, right?) ...

then we headed to dinner at ROOST in downtown Greenville. SO GOOD.
I had the scallops and they were delish!

the whole crew!

we sipped rosé and toasted to another year around the sun for two of our favorite ladies!

old friends, new friends...just hanging out with girlfriends is good for the soul and
 we had so much fun celebrating!!!!

happy birthday Charlie!

Oh my precious Charlie...time sure flies!

He may look just like his mama, but he acts just like his daddy. He’s calm, cool and collective. Reserved, easy-going, super sweet...but sure to keep you laughing with his off the wall, witty one liners 💥His spunky little personality shines through more and more each year and he certainly keeps us all entertained. His hobbies include: playing Roblox, lining up Matchbox cars from one end of the house to the other, eating salads (!?!) and well, doing anything Cade is doing 🤪He’s a mama’s boy. He says jump, I ask “how high?” (#guilty) and he will always, always, always be my baby boy 💙

in honor of his birthday, here's my most favorite video of him...EVER.
you're welcome.
