I can’t imagine life without this little man, who will turn one in a few weeks.
The world is a wondrous place for him. So many new things to learn. So many things to explore. Places to go. People to see.
Crawling, walking, stumbling, plopping, grinning, banging, clapping, waving, blowing kisses.
Then there’s his loyal sidekick, Gizmo, who sits mutely and watches it all. Snatching a baby cookie if he times things just right.
My daughter and I went to lunch. Had a good time. Ate Chinese, laughed. The most important part of all? We were together.
And all was right with the world.
