Smile: Found



I loved these pictures so much I had to steal them from Charlie's aunt Susie. I've never been able to catch this "cheeser"
Update: We tried increasing his reflux med for a few days with no change in his demeaner and then increased Neurontin and he has improved. Hurray!!! He still prefers to be in someone's arms (but who doesn't) but he will lay by himself for up to 15 minutes and even is taking a nap. Thanks for everyone's concern and prayers. Let's hope it keeps improving.

love him. granted that smile session was only once and quite short lived, but hooray in any case! i am thrilled with his progress/or maybe i should call it change - this week. helping out in the kitchen (by sitting for 20 minutes while you cooked), and taking a long nap - like more than 45 minutes. he is a champ. i love him. i hope he stays smiley for awhile.

Seeing that smile warms my heart. I'm glad that he's feeling (slightly) better and that you are getting more of a break.

Oh....My.....GOSH!! Those are THE cutest pics I have ever seen! When I look at his sweet little face, I see a little personality and a little sparkle in his eyes. Hopefully those smiles let you know that everything you do for him is getting through. I know he feels how much you love him, and that makes everything worth it!

Look at that smile that was caught in those photographs and look at his smile in the blog header. They are the exact same smiles!!! After all his little brain has been through, the same smile remains. I don't know about you but that kinds makes me feel good and hopeful!! He is so gorgeous that boy!!! Keep up the smiley moods!!

Angel, hey I found Charlie's site through Roxey's. I was one of Britton's preschool teachers last year at W. Bountiful ( Miss Amber) I actually was Kenya's teacher at Oakhills Preschool a few years ago. Anyway so that is how I know Roxey and found your blog! I am glad to see those sweet smiles from him. I have been wondering since I stopped teaching after I had my twins how he was doing and now I am glad that I can keep up with him. It is fun looking at the pictures and seeing Britton as well. I hope that things just continue to get better for you all. Good luck!

What a precious smile - Charlie. It makes my heart happy to see his beautiful smile. I have followed your blog for nearly a year. I happened upon it through KSL.com, and what a blessing. Your family is an inspiration to all. Your faith, strength, endurance and love are a motivation. Bless you!! Bless little Charlie. I am so looking forward to meeting him. (Ask Grandma Cheryl to explain :)
