It’s been a flurry of history fair costumes (and that wonderful historical hat tutorial I promised… will definitely post next week) and family visits and 1st birthday preparations. Perhaps the sweetest prep has been in the hands of the man-cub’s big sister, who was the first to touch him as he was born, and has been in constant companion this year.

She decided to make him a “10-reasons why I love you” card book, similar to the one she made for her dad and I blogged about here.
And to know the two of them – the two children I have been honored with being a mother to – have one another and love one another…. well, that’s the best thing in the world, isn’t it?
