friday, THIS guy turned FOUR years old, it was traumatic for both of us.
i swear he was taller when he woke up this morning.
as you can tell, he is beautiful.
he is also remarkably thoughtful and intelligent and funny.
he has hair down to his ass and the biggest, bluest eyes you ever did see.
he can make you feel better in an instant - for that, i am always grateful.
Happy Birthday Otis Finnegan, thank you for always pushing the limits (and our patience), thank you for making us laugh and for being a source of inertia beyond comprehension.
you are worth every struggle.
we LOVE you.
p.s.) please don't wake me up at 6 a.m.
