LIFE AT 18 MONTHS | CHARLIE STYLE

16CHARLIERETZ18M9956 copy

WHEN YOU’RE 18 MONTHS I THINK THAT LIFE IS COMPLETELY YOUR WAY…UNTIL MOM OR DAD PULL YOU BACK IN. I LOVE WHEN PARENTS SCHEDULE AN 18 MONTH SESSION. THERE IS JUST SO MUCH CHANGE FROM 1 TO 2 AND CAPTURING THAT HALFWAY POINT IS SUCH A DELIGHT!

FOR EXAMPLE AT ONE CHARLIE WAS JUST STARTING TO BE MOBILE. TENTATIVE STEPS CONNECTING A FEW MORE TOGETHER EACH ATTEMPT. AT 18 MONTHS THERE IS NO FEAR OF FALLING WHATSOEVER. 16CHARLIERETZ18M0115 copy

CHARLIE WAS VERY COMFORTABLE RUNNING; ANYWHERE BUT WHERE WE HAD A CHAIR OR A PROP SET UP. BUT AT 18 MONTHS THEY ARE EASILY PERSUADED. (*NOTE TO MOM THIS WILL BE A DIFFERENT THING AT TWO*) 16CHARLIERETZ18M9863 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9841 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9822 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9871 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9885 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9906 copy

BOOKS, BEARS AND MOST DEFINITELY BASKETBALL WAS ALL IT TOOK TO GET SIR CHARLIE TO DO EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED TO CAPTURE HIS PERFECT LITTLE TEETH, THOSE DARLING DIMPLED HANDS AND HIS BEAUTIFUL BIG EYES. 16CHARLIERETZ18M9956 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M9931 copy

CLIMBING ON THE TRIKE WAS A FUN PROP BECAUSE NOW WE CAN SEE HOW MUCH HE GROWS BY TWO. WONDER IF HE WILL BE ABLE TO REACH THE PEDDLES? AHH… THE JOY OF CHANGE IN LITTLE GIFTS FROM GOD.

IT WAS SUCH A DELIGHTFUL DAY AND SINCE CHARLIE’S BIRTHDAY IS IN THE WINTER MOST OF OUR SESSIONS ARE INDOOR SO WE REALLY WENT ALL OUT AND CAPTURED SOME FUN MOMENTS AT THE BEACH WITH HIS AMAZING MOM AND DAD. 16CHARLIERETZ18M0081 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0055 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0005 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0153 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0130 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0115 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0164 copy 16CHARLIERETZ18M0107 copy

I HAVE TRULY ALWAYS LOVED AND BELIEVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN THE QUOTE: “THE BEST THING A FATHER CAN GIVE HIS CHILDREN IS TO LOVE THEIR MOTHER.” THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THIS WOMAN IS TRULY LOVED BY HER MEN. HOW BLESSED AM I TO CAPTURE THAT LOOK OF LOVE. 16CHARLIERETZ18M0080 copy
