Coop's 2 yr pictures

Charlie's Aunt Susie and cousin Amanda took him on a photo shoot for his 2 year old pictures. They turned out so fantastic that I had to share them with you. The photographer is Amy Larson of clipsandclicks.com. I have had several people ask who took the big-eyed picture in the red sweater that used to be at the top of blog and sent them to her website. She is really patient, creative, talented and super sweet. She was able to capture all of his cute expressions that define his personality- the way he likes to chew on his binky, the big mouth-eyes closed smile, the way he always crosses his legs, purses his lips if he's a little mad and the full scream face. Last year at this time we only saw the sleeping face or the crying face so I'm so grateful for what this past year has brought us. I hope you enjoy a glimpse at all the Charlie Faces!

(Thanks Jen for the perfect blanket backdrop. I love it so much and still want to learn someday)

Fabulous!!! LOVE them. I'm also impressed Suz actually let her picture be taken. These really let you see some of his Charlie Steps. Precious Baby!

I love them all! They all brought tears to my eyes. I can't believe how much he is starting to look like Britton! Keep up the "Charlie Steps" little man you are doing great!

He looks so grown up! What a sweet boy! I love the screaming one on the quilt, and the one at the top of your blog. What a sweet boy!

Love seeing the many moods of Char on the slide show. Isn't he such a precious little one??!!!
Really love the photos and music is great too.

Oh Jolene......lets be clear.....I had NO IDEA I was being photographed or I would have run for the hills. Amy is stealth.

You know I love a multi-task and when Amy said she could do Char's photos while she was doing Manda's graduation photos I was giddy. I really had very low expectation since Charles is in charge. I was blown away when I saw how perfectly Amy so generously caputured all his faces. He really is the purest amongst us.

Truly incredible! I love this little boy more than I can say and it warms my soul to see such great moods from him...happy, sad, mad, peaceful. He's indeed an angel amongst us.

And yes, Amy is amazing. Wish she lived here so we could constantly bore her with Emma!

Very Cute! Amy does such a wonderful job. She is a sister-in-law to one of my best friends. She has done our kids pics to. Happy 2 year Charlie!

I love these pictures! How wonderful for those of us who don't know you all personally (but have been following your blog since Feb 2008) to be able to see the many adorable faces of Charlie!

These are great pictures :)
A friend sent me the link to Charlie's blog. I read the posts from the beginning. My son (he's almost 2) also got meningitis and his story is almost identical to Charlie's. Brought back the memories of the hosptial, etc. We also use the otto bock stroller. I would have just emailed, but still can't quite figure out how to do that through blogger.

Tammy said...

I love those pics. He is getting so big and he is so cute. Glad things are well for you guys.

I've been so busy with work and life in general, that I haven't been able to visit this blog since probably April.

OMG the change is INCREDIBLE! While no where near 100%, Charlie is SO "In there" now! There is a real difference. Being with him 24/7 it's probably hard to see the changes, but boy I sure see them. His eyes are more "together" and he has really "grown up!"

Way to go Jack Jack!

now it's back to reading so I can "catch up!"

Love you all! Sue Wolfe

Hello...
I have been following Charlie's blog for a while now. Charlie's story is so similar to my son's (Jonathan just turned 2 in August). I cried when I read everything from when he first got sick. We ahve the same stroller, AFOs, CIs, etc. I love his 2 year pictures, such a handsome little guy :)

Hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend!
