This isn't a figure of speech. I literally can't believe it. I can't wrap my head around it.
Here is that darling boy on his birthday morning. His eyes are wild. Birthday craze.
Last year I made a video of my boy. I had decided not to do another because I already used pictures from the first four years of his life, and what would one other year add? But as I watched that video (only twenty or so times in the weeks leading up to this most significant birthday), I realized that the difference between last year and this one is a lot. He has grown so much in the last 365 days. So maybe I will put another one together. But in the meantime, if you just can't get enough Charlie (and I know I can't), here is the video of his first four years.
