Ready and Waiting

"I can't wait to have a little boy. But, knowing our luck, we will have all girls."

"That's okay," I replied.

(long pause) and then he melted my heart with this:

"I just want ONE. It doesn't matter which kind."


This was the conversation that we had after chasing each other around Toys R' Us shopping for our niece, Lily. I knew that I had to include him in this journey to Toys R' Us, because he loves that place. Just like a 7 year-old, he grabs everything he sees, and yells "COOL!"

I guess it's nice to know he is going to make one amazing Father.

Well, after seeing both of you with Lily and Jack these past couple days I know you will make the most amazing parents. They both love you so much.
