and the world changes.
You close your eyes for a minute…..
And put up balloons and eat some fried shrimp,
And sit in the grass for a little while looking at oak leaves. You take your scooter for a spin.
And the next day, a Baby Brother is there.
And suddenly you have somebody to share your gelato with, and your favorite pair of heart-shaped sunglasses.
And all those things you used to notice and do by yourself, now there is somebody else to notice things and do things with. Like, the way Mommy makes everything pretty with pillows and wreaths on the front door, and decorates with flowers, and remembers the details that make people feel special.
Or the way your Daddy lights up a room and makes everybody laugh.
And that Daddy’s side of the family has a weird thing about margaritas and chips…
And that Mommy’s side of the family is always hugging and laughing!
And even though life just changed, it’s okay because love doesn’t change.
It just gets bigger.
And there is always room for one more.
Happy Birthday Landon! Welcome to the world.
I think your Dad is kind of hoping you’ll like Key Lime Pie. No pressure, though.
