Must be a Burns thing

One of the first words that I remember the Bubbers (Brian and Mindy's twins) saying is "shiiz" in a really excited voice. They would always be holding up at least one of their shoes with a big smile on their face and it was there way of letting you know that they wanted you to put their shoes on.
Well, it must be a Burns thing because Charlie also loves shoes. If he ever sees his shoes, he rushes over, picks them up, and then walks over to you with a big grin while waving them in the air (and usually making his "ah-ah" sound (which means he wants something) at least once or twice).
Jenni says that he just "really likes shoes", but my theory is that, like the Bubbers, he associates shoes to playing outside and going to the park and that's why he always wants to put them on. Who know what the real reason is and I guess it doesn't matter, but one thing I'm sure of is that the little guy sure does love shoes.

Charlie actually hates putting on and taking off shirts because they barely fit over his HUGE head, but it must also be a Burns thing because he also likes clothes.

Oh shoes for a one year old...they're like brownies for breakfast-nothing better. My Maddi loves them too. Hey I'm glad to see that my husband isn't the only one playing games with a headset on. Jenni, I need to have a UL party. We need to get together and find a good time!

i think charlie is far from a burns with the enormous head he is sporting... i for one had to tuck my ears in all my hats so they would fit on my head... charlie will NEVER have that problem--

I think that the huge head is one of the few things that he got from me (I mean he is the spitting image of a Burns baby in other regards), because hats barely fit on the kids head already and I still struggle to find a hat that doesn't make me look like a dufus.
