Officially Introducing Charlie (204 days late)

On September 8th, 2010 I looked like this:


2 days later on September 10th at 11:10pm, this guy, weighing 9lbs 12oz, entered the world:

Simple right?

I won't bore everyone with my long-winded, gory, hyperbolic account of my birth story. I'll just say that this kid will be hearing about it.

For the rest of his life.

Every mother's day.

And birthday.

It both seems like ages ago that he arrived, but also that it's gone so fast. A confusing statement that I'm sure other moms can understand.

But it's crazy to think that a little guy that just 6.5 months ago was this (not so) tiny blob of cuteness

now is a little person with a personality. And funny facial expressions. And a sense of humour.

I didn't say it was a normal sense of humour.


  1. Seriously the cutest video ever! I love his laugh!

  2. It's quite the hearty laugh eh? It's not a delicate little giggle, that's for sure!
