it was november of last year, when this little guy's mother walked into my mom's house. i was standing in bathroom trying to blush some color onto my cheeks, blinking too many times; trying to hold back tears. catherine didn't say much - she didn't need to, but what she said has become a mantra i repeat almost daily... ''you will be a mother someday'' and she hugged me and she understood.
she has two precious little ones. and, this little guy is the funniest, sweetest and fastest little one around! he loved the water and the dogs and i'm pretty sure that my entire family smiles just a little harder when he is around.
