happy birthday



"...before i knew it, they bundled him up and brought him over. so sweet and tiny. i could see dan was smitten with our new baby and i yearned to hold him. the first thing i noticed about our beautiful boy was his nose. it was just like mine. he had large eyes, dark fuzzy hair and skin like a perfect peach. i gave him a li'l kiss and thought oh boy, do i love you. he has suddenly and completely made my heart more whole than i'd ever imagined."
