Oh, the anticipation of Santa coming!
But then, he was just too tired to wait up!
So excited to see that Santa came and left TONS of presents!!
(A picture of the presents will go here as soon as we get it off of the other camera)
We greatly enjoyed seeing our entire family on the holidays for the first time in several years. Charlie thinks he did a good job of working to bond with his cousins, second cousins, first cousins once-twice-three times removed and a whole sort of other family members. It was a busy, busy time for Charlie and we're not certain he has yet to recover in full (hence, my dreary eyes from being up with our precious angel since 4am today).
Charlie with his Papa on Christmas morning.
And posing with his cousins on Christmas Day.
Napping with MeMaw during the ginormous family gathering.
Playing with his cousin, Joshua.
But, in typical Napoleon fashion, he could not stand that the babies were getting all of the attention, so he had to put himself right in the middle of all the action.
Today, Jennifer started her new job at Memorial (Health University Medical Center for Fine Arts, Liberal Arts and a whole bunch of other stuff). We just stick to Memorial, although the hospital has undergone quite the transformation since we were last Savannah residents...apparently one that will match it's new expanded name. One day, I will learn which wing of the hospital campus that now engulfs Waters Ave. Jenn will be working in. Jenn told me today (after day 1), so far-so good. I keep plugging away at my job. I enjoy the people I am working with, but cannot wait for a little PTO to build up so I can enjoy a little R&R following an exhausting first 2 months and holiday season. As Jennifer and I are now both working, Charlie started school today (daycare that is). It was hard enough taking him that first time to drop off at Aunt Amanda and Uncle Ben's for the day...today was a really tough day. Jenn and I both dropped Charlie off this morning and then cried our eyes out on our respective trips to work. Charlie made it through the day and all reports are he enjoyed himself and his teachers enjoyed him. The first comment made about Charlie by his teachers..."He never stops smiling." We are blessed to have a happy, healthy and wonderful son and can't wait to see him continue to grow (though one day, I am sure we will say he grew up WAY TOO FAST).
Ready for his first day of school.
Charlie crashed when he got home, it was a long day.
And now, some random pictures of the Charlie-man
Ready to go to a Braves game!
Just hanging out and looking cute (because Aunt Amanda "NEEEEEDED" some pictures.)
