Charlie's Half Birthday Cake!!


I know what you're thinking. We get it, he's 6 months old. I know, I know. But, Charlie's Aunt Mindy made him this DARLING puppy dog cake today. We put 6 candles on the cake, and sang to the little guy (well 95th percentile isn't little - but little when compared to an adult). I let Charlie lick the frosting off my finger - which he thoroughly enjoyed. Charlie's cousins (Coralee, Carter, and Wyatt) attacked him with love from the moment they walked in the door. Charlie's cousins get so excited to see him and say his name over and again, and tell me what he needs or ask to hold him. Carter helped me change Charlie's poopy diaper during dinner too, handing me the wipes one at a time. That's true love. They helped give Charlie a bath too, bringing him toys, squirting the lotion in my hand, and getting his arms through the jammies. With 6 extra little hands, it was very helpful -kinda. More cute than helpful. But, fun nonetheless. How many more years until they can babysitt?

Coralee can babysit in 4 years (yipee!), but I'm not sure we'd ever want the boys babysitting! They ARE so helpful! :)
