linebacker or what??

Heard on the street in somewhere, USA...
"who goes there with those two linebackers under his arms?"
"oh, that's that Charlie kid...he's solid."

or anytown in Ireland...

he'll never get in trouble because he can always say...

How many adults does it take to give Charlie a bath? Grandma, grandpa, and mom!

Charlie is growing, and having fun in daycare. He can't wait until rugby camp though!!

Milestones...GOOD AND BAD!!

These are some of our neighborhood kids...they are great with babies!!

Above here he is looking at his dangly toys in his chair. But his REAL milestone, was looking at himself in the mirror!!!!! IT WAS AWESOME!! "Who is that other baby in there?"
Good stuff...and then>

Anyone ever been to the emergency room with their 10 week old? Never do it! If you do, make sure your pediatrician, or at least their colleague, is GOING TO BE THERE!!!

Long story, but Charlie is alright. Just a 103 temp scare that was not as big as THE ER STAFF manifested it to be. Should have been in and out, with a general antibiotic, and that's it. 3 hours later, we still hadn't seen a doctor, and we were fit to be tied (as they used to say)!!

Anyway, Charlie has had his first intestinal bug, and is almost over it. But what a night/day.

I need a drink.

Go Heels

Wow...we haven't seen this kind of aggressive, "I'm faster than you" look since about '97. Great win for a rebuilding program. Charlie was happy!!!! He really likes Brandon Tate. Oh, and Mom likes Marvin Austin. (Even though Bruce Carter pictured above is great!)

a healthy baby

We can't ask for more.
14 pounds and counting. The Doc says he looks great! Like he doesn't miss a meal...we can only hope this will always be the case.

So far so good. Even his workouts are going great!!!!! ;-)

First game!!

As Carolina was winning 14-nil, Charlie was enjoying every minute of it. I have to say, it was a wonderful show. Streaks, flashes of brilliance, and then the lightning delay was over, and Carolina took the field again...
Yep, Charlie saw his first weather delay. The lightning show was great, so was Carolina before the delay. Oh well. Live and learn. At least there is a "W" in the column.

Above is Charlie and Mom at his first tailgate. It was a beautiful day, a little warm, but it could have been much worse! The food was great though!!

Charlie has a look like "Pop, what are we doing here??"

We miss you Jerry...
