On December 12, 2012 I met the most special little baby, and had no idea in that moment that this little guy would become my everything, he would be the reason I woke up in the morning, the reason I went to the beach, the reason I worked hard, the reason I loved being at home more than anywhere, he become my whole reason for existing.
I immediately become that mom that dresses there fur babies in clothes and take them to photoshoots, I was that mom that took my baby with me everywhere and if a place didn’t allow pets, we didn’t go. Charlie brought so much joy into my life, a joy I had never experienced, with a love that ran so deep it can’t even be explained.
When we got his brother Louis I was so afraid he would be jealous of him, but he loved him from the moment they met, our family literally felt complete, like all this time we were just waiting for Louis to come along. The way they played, slept, ate, and did everything together cemented that belief in me.
I know that Charlie would not want us to suffer in our grief and that he would want us to continue on with our lives, but there is not a moment that passes that I don’t feel the need to call out to him and hold him. Our family now feels incomplete, we have a piece missing and it hurts. But I also know that Charlie is not hurting, he is somewhere waiting for the rest of us to arrive, and when we do there will be lots of soft blankets to cuddle under and the best theater system playing his favorite movies, but until then we love you so much Charlie❤️
