9 months ago... So short... A lifetime... And I feel so nostalgic for that time, perhaps because I am here.
Your daddy and I were awake at 3:45am. Did you wake us so that we could share that special time? I'm glad- we are glad- that you did.
Your (paternal) grandmother visited today with two large mugs "I love Mom", "I love Dad", and a tupperware of your favorite: tomato soup. And, let's not forget, a bag of tuna fish sandwiches, using your great-grandpa's recipe. A recipe that your daddy perfected when I craved them so much with you... I know that Grandpa is with you now, holding you on his knee, telling you all about the sandwiches he used to make your daddy and Uncle Robert and, later, me...
We love you so much, my sweet Alexander. Happy Birthday, baby boy. A very happy 9m birthday.
