You quietly announced your pending arrival with mild contractions that lasted for days. But then, when you made up your mind, it was all gangbusters… 23 minutes from the time my water broke until you were in my arms.
Even now, your personality sneaks up on us and catches us by surprise. So quiet and so funny and so smart.
I miss cradling your peach-fuzz head in the palm of my hand, but adore watching your graceful transition from baby to toddler. …And, yes, always, little brother.
