Omg!!!! This guy turns 10 today!! Ten years... I really can't believe that it's been 10 years and why does it feel like now it's almost over? My little cornichon is what we used to call him because all I wanted while I was pregnant were those fancy little pickles from Le Pain Quotidien. We used to watch him sleep for hours. Not "sleeping when they sleep" like you're supposed to because he was and IS such a miracle.
How is it possible that grew him in my body? That I made every limb and his beautiful mind and his skinny little butt and his blond curly hair... all in my womb? Mind blowing. And now he's 10. He's getting little pimples around his nose and he sleeps late on the weekends (which I've been waiting for!) and it's all happening so so fast and I know that's what everyone says that it goes by so quickly and you better enjoy it but I don't think I was prepared for this level of FEELING that came from buying his first stick of deodorant! o dear.
Happy birthday Walker. My first born son, My love, My muse! I am going to kiss you until I'm old and can't reach anymore. And then you'll have to kiss me.
Here's Walker when he was a newborn babe...
