One thing about 2009.

I know a lot of people had a terrible year, or at least I keep hearing that everyone is eager for 2009 to be over. Maybe they say it every year and I just don't notice it as much. But 2009 was a pretty amazing year for me. It was the year I met Clyde. I know that is super sappy, but sometimes the truth is really sappy, people. That kid rejuvenated me and kind of brought me to life in a way I didn't even know I needed to be brought to life. And it makes me a little sad that the year he was born will be remembered as a bad year, but maybe it won't. Maybe time will go on and people will forget and it won't be part of the consciousness that 2009 sucked. I wish for everyone that 2009 made them feel how Clyde makes me feel, and how Curious George makes Clyde feel.

(And P.S. of course I love Harper just as much but I met her in 2006!)

    Oh my. What a luscious picture of your baby boy. Pretty sure the phrase "I could eat him up" must've been invented to describe Clyde. And sappy is where it's at. I'm glad I met him in 2009, too. Please kiss his cheeks for me.

  2. I was just blog surfing and found your lovely picture of your sweet boy. From the mama of one sweet boy to the mama of another, thank you for sharing pure glee.
