He's one!

Charlie had a great birthday. He loved the house decorations and loved having dinner early so we could share cake and ice cream out in the courtyard. He acted pretty chill yet slightly interested throughout the whole event. He liked wearing his party hat, he liked watching all the other kids, he liked eating cake and ice cream, and he liked opening presents.

Alec was such a nice and patient brother and behaved very well watching his little brother get spoiled on his birthday. I was very impressed.

Above is his reaction to his first big bite of ice cream. He LOVED the ice cream.



Charlie is so friendly! He likes to give hugs to good friends, and even walked up to his doctor to have her hold him! He smiles a lot and is not afraid to hold his own around big kids. If what he wants is in the middle of a bunch of rowdy 4 year olds, he'll just walk on through and even try to take toys from them. He thinks he's much older than he is and tries to do everything Alec does. He loves to walk and often just paces around the rooms holding toys or touching furniture. He goes to sleep all by himself, loves to eat crayons, chalk, sand, twigs and bark. He makes a really sad face and depressed cry when he can't have something he wants. He likes to put things in things (ex. balls in cups), push around cars and hit balls with sticks, clubs, or bats. He's handsome, sweet, daring and charming. We LOVE our little Charlie.

Your boys are beautiful! If the 23 is Charlie's actual B-day he shares it with Henry, our brand new little guy. Its a great day for a birthday ;).

BTW - Charlie was a name that we STRONGLY considered. The Archibalds have excellent taste. (From PETER SMITH).
