A Day at the Gym with the Christensens


Britt thrilled to hang out with his little brother.

Rob desperately trying to teach Britty to balance...
and teaching him the ways of killer ball.

Britty only gets to play "hard" with daddy.
He loved playing on all of Charlie's rehab equipment and especially loved trying to crash into Grandma on the bike.

Coop was not hating the stander!
Britty being attacked by the tickle monster.

We know who is the better looking of the Christensen men!
Angel power lifting her big boy.

Beautiful baby boy

Hi guys. It is so great to see Britty get to come play with Rob, Angel and Coop. The Colonel is starting to get better, so we will come see you soon. Hopefully, at your house rather than the hospital. We love you all.

Charlie looks so good! Now that I am on the mend, I have some big visits planned to see Charlie and Britt. Hopefully the hanging out will be at home and not the hospital. And Angel, who are you kidding. Britton balance? Hee Hee.

Hey Guys, you don't know me but my friend and I check out Charlie's blog every day. We are running the 5K as well. We made a blanket for your sweet boy and we wanted to bring it to you. If you could call me at 859-3201 or email me at allison@roundpegdzn.com and tell me if it's okay to just bring it into the hospital, that would be great. If you don't have time (which I totally understand) that's okay too. I'll just take it to the hospital and leave it there. Thank you for the inspiration your family is to my family.

He IS beautiful. Its so nice that the staff lets Britt play on the equipment. Thats got to help him feel more involved for sure.
Glad the vent is helping.. hope he has a good day.

shani & A - i posted the comment about Britt's steller balance - if you read it again it says rob is trying to teach britt to balance - a feat not easily done. i think janie looks like her older cousin in that last picture. i love the new lip smacking he is doing these days with the lip balm! he is such a sweet sweet boy.

Coop looks so good! It is fun to see him playing with Britt. Are they going to see how he tolerates the new tube before they take out the one in his nose? What is the timeline? I miss this boy!

You don't know me, but my mom works with Erin at Parkside. I have been reading Charlie's blog for a few days now. Your little family is in our prayers. Charlie is looking better. I pray that you will be able to take him home soon.

I haven't been ignoring your posts, I have simply run out of things to say (not an easy task). But, Charlie's pictures are so beautiful and full of life and he looks so attentive and like he is absorbing some of his surroundings. Wow! those Charlie steps seem to be reaching bigger and bigger.. Good luck to you. Love you, JIll B

I LOVE that last pic of Charlie (minus the ugly, U-shaped marking on his cheek, of course). I think he looks AMAZING! And I love that you all got to spend some family time "playin" together! Glad things seem to be on the "two steps forward" phase! Keep it up!

Charlie IS so beautiful! We saw you on the news the other night...love your family, so sad about all you've gone through, but know that All is Well, and you will get through this.

Its been a long day.....just got home and the first thing I did after putting my kids to bed is check up on Charlie's blog to see how he is doing. I am so happy and relieved the tubes are working. He looks so cute and adorable in the photos....in some ways Charlie reminds me of my little boy. It is cute to see your son Britt enjoying all of Charlie's rehab equipment....he is also a sweet and tender boy. Your family is beautiful and you as parents are so amazing....you are an inspiration to me. I look forward for Charlie to continue to get better and know that he is in our families prayers. Love you Charlie and Goodnight you precious baby boy!!! Love, the Paddocks in CA
