I'm not sure how my aunt is doing. No one really seems to talk about it. But, I know her spirits are good and that she's a fighter. I know that she's surrounded by people who love her with every breath. I know that my cousin's husband is a very kind man, who has taken to first-time fatherhood and newly acquired sandwich generation responsibilities, like he was born for them.
I am also excited to share this person, this amazing little person, who steals hearts with his hearty smile and big blue eyes, with my family. Some of them have never met him, despite our only living 4 hours away. Others haven't seen him for about a year and a half, and he's changed just a bit since then.
He's no longer a squishy, bald baby, but this little boy with opinions and words, who never stops moving. EVER.
On another of things we're pondering, Nathan is potty training and it's going great! He asks to go to the potty every day when we get home from work. He's successfully peed in the potty four times (a great ratio for the short amount of time he's been trying). I'm ridiculously optimistic. Feel free to bring me down to earth.
