Happy Birthday, Charlotte.

It took you only an hour and a half to make your way out of me. You seem to be in rather a hurry to make your own way in the world, eating, crawling, and talking faster than your brothers. I hope you won't be in such a hurry to grow on up and out of here, though. Because I love having you around, you sweet, smart, silly, sassafrass baby.
