6 Years Ago...

...A very grouchy and wrinkled little man came into my life. He rarely smiled and frequently informed Robb and I of our shortcomings as parents. That first year was kind of a blur. But as he reached each new milestone...teeth, walking, talking...his attitude really improved. He still gets up at 5:30 a.m. nearly every morning. He still has my Dad's blue eyes. He still informs us of our shortcomings as parents, but now he does it in a really cute and polite way. The other morning, he told me, "Mom, I don't want a big fancy gift from you for my birthday. I just want a hug." He was quick to inform Robb that he did want a big gift from him. He is funny and smart and sweet. He is relentless and always hungry and can never be in the moment because he is always thinking about what will happen next(Who do you think he got that from?). I never thought it was possible to feel this way about a person, but I am totally smitten by this guy. Look at these pics...can you blame me? Happy Birthday, Vinny. I love you.
