And so do you little boy. You had my heart even before you were born. I don’t see you very often because we live so far apart but on my previous visits, you’ve always been happy to sit and watch the world go by. Until you got mobile, that is! Now your Mum tells me you are so rough and tumble. Your Dad is helping you with that here. And you’ve become much more vocal, making yourself heard especially when you’re not happy with something. Your Mum sent us a video clip of you taking a few carefully orchestrated steps a couple of weeks ago. Oupa and I watched it over and over again. And when she posted this photo, we kept going back to it to have another look and take in your cuteness. You have the most adorable smile and with those dimples, your blue eyes and your curls, you make me melt. You’ve enjoyed playing in the garden with Jack lately - I can see you love being outside just like he does. I so hope we have some sunshine when I visit in July. I also hope you have lots of smiles like this for me too. I’ve a feeling I’m going to see a big change in you since we last saw you on your first birthday. But no matter how much you grow, no matter how much you change, no matter what age you are, you will always be my little Charlie Bear. Always. Always. Always. Even when you’re a teenager and it’s not cool to be a bear, especially in front of your friends. I may have already said this but I love you to the moon and back my sweet, sweet boy.
