August Pictures....

When we returned from vacation, we had a little treat in our inbox- August pictures of Charlie from our insider friend... ;D
He looks soooo big. It's been 5 months since we saw him and his face has really thinned out. He is almost half way to being 3 years old, when we first saw him it was only a day after his second birthday when he was still a baby, now he is approaching toddler-dom  I suppose...
So this is what we think happens for the photo shoots. They bring him out of the room by himself, sometimes to the main room located outside of his class, sometimes outside to the playground, and I think sometimes to the "sleeping room" while everyone else must be in the playroom/eating room. This is why you need to know this information:
One of the pictures is taken in the main room, where all of the teachers and workers walk back in forth to the classrooms. It is like a living room if you will- a couch, a t.v., area rug and storage for ride on toys. So in this picture, sits Charlie, in front of the big window and couch ON A PINK POTTY shorts around his ankles. Yes, you heard me right. I think they are trying to tell us he is now potty trained. The funny part is that they moved the potty from the "potty line-up" in the bathroom to the living room for the photo. I can hear them say "show Mama and Papa how you can use the potty!" The funny thing is that he doesn't even look confused. Actually, sitting on his bubblegum pink throne, he looks as if he is mid-sentence. His mouth is open, head tilted to the side, one arm pointing forward and the other above the head mid-ballerina pose. Like he is saying "The potty use to be in that room over there, but now it's in the middle of the living room in front of the t.v and LOOK you have a CAMERA!" And perhaps also pondering why he is wearing terry cloth short shorts and continues to sport the reverse mullet. Oh wait, that's just his mama that is wondering that....
He looks happy, healthy, and not missing us a bit. Those three things are exactly what we were hoping for. That and we won't be needing "September Pictures".


  1. It's so nice that you got some pictures! Someone is looking out for you guys!

  2. The only September pictures that need to be taken are the ones taken by family....It is great that you have someone to keep track of him via pictures! Hurry home Charlie, I pray for you everyday!

  3. So glad you got to see more pictures of your little guy! What, exactly, is a reverse mullet?

  4. Dear Barb:
    A reverse mullet is, in the back, party in the front. Basically a buzz cut with fringe bangs. Great image, I know!
