Happy 5th Birthday, Charlie!

Almost exactly five years ago (to the minute!), a baby boy made his way into the world, pink and shouting.
We didn't know what the future held for him - or for us.
Now, half a decade later, that baby has grown so big.
He has achieved more than we ever dreamed possible.
He has taught us things we never knew before.
He has given us a whole new perspective on life, and a whole new set of priorities.
He has been through more at five, than many have been through in a whole lifetime - with more to come - but he still bursts into each and every day with joy and hope and enthusiasm.
He is such a special son and brother, and we are so proud of him.
Happy fifth birthday, Charlie-Barley. We love you more than you'll ever know.

(Birthday celebration post to come later, complete with fireworks!)
