Return to Hahira

Beware, I went a little crazy with the pictures, but Charlie is just at such a cute age right now that I couldn’t narrow it down any further. Two weeks ago a lot happened. Charlie took his first steps (and now two weeks later he is really going to town and can all of a sudden make it about half way across a room now). It’s the weirdest feeling to be ecstatic, proud, and also sad all at the same time. This milestone seems so much bigger than even the other ones that we’ve been through because to me it makes him much more a little boy and much less a baby.

Two weeks ago, Charlie and I also made the trek back down to Hahira to visit his great grandparents again. LONG TRIP…what is normally a long trip (4 hours) took me from 1:50 in the afternoon until 8:15 at night. Now that he’s more awake he does not want to be in the carseat and I had to wrestle him (literally) back into it after each time we stopped for dinner and restroom breaks. He threw a complete fit – which was not a pretty sneak peek into what they terrible two’s might be like one day. Once we were there, he was great – put on his party face for everyone and showed off all his tricks. Granny and Granddaddy enjoyed playing with him and seeing how much he had changed since May. Uncle Jim even came up and cut the mullet for Charlie, who was more fascinated than terrified. He didn’t shed a single tear during the experience…just sat in his bumbo patiently.

We’re having a quiet weekend at home this week, and celebrating our friend Will’s 1st birthday on Saturday. Next weekend we leave for Hilton Head for a week with Nana and Papa – can’t wait to have a full week of relaxing (that may be wishful thinking), and definitely tons of sweet memories.
