[first day. Fall 2010]
This little guy had squeezable cheeks, no glasses and awesome style! [I truly loved it when I got to dress my guys. I made sure they looked hip, but I digress.] He was eager to be at school like his big brother and ready to make some of his own friends.

I was once asked to give one of my dearest friends advice at her baby shower. I advised, “Love her for who she is, not who you thought she would be.” I have decided to follow my own advice. Hank is set in his ways, emotional, and quick tempered. Not always easy to manage, but witty and funny. I love to be around him and will defend him to the end of my days. I often go in his room at night and watch him sleep. He is content, safe, and still so, so little. I can’t change who he is, so I will try and help him become the best version of himself.
Parenting. Firsts, lasts, and everything in between. It is quite the ride and never know what to expect. Here’s to the next first!
