Meet Charlie James

Welcome Sign

Welcome Sign

Charlie’s first visit to Nana & Poppa’s house! We hosted a luncheon in our apartment for neighbors and friends to come and meet Charlie, including two future playmates!  Those adorable boys are 16 months and 6 months older but will be loads of fun when Charlie gets to the toddler stage of life.

Everyone had a great time and Charlie was passed around more than once and was very sweet about it!  Charlie enjoyed his first visit to Nana & Poppa’s house, he seemed to find lots of interesting things to gaze upon!

Here’s some highlights of his visiting:

    Oh yes, he was certainly the Star, he really didn’t want to sleep through it, he did very well with the crowd and is just the sweetest baby ever. And no I’m not biased in the least…..just so proud to have another wonderful grandson!
