I am the oldest of four. My baby brother and I are almost 8 years apart. He has always held a special place in my heart. When we were kids, we used to play a game in my room, where we would pretend that we were stranded on an island (my bed) that was surrounded by lava (the carpet) and I had to keep him safe. He would pretend to fall into the lava and I would grab him by his chubby heels and shout, "Nooo! I will save you, my Lava Baby!" and he would giggle and giggle and giggle.
Today is my Lava Baby's birthday. He is a whopping 31 years old and he still holds a special place in my heart. I love you, Charlie. And I will always keep you safe!
