you just love them. i stopped trying to control things & he has shown me how he likes things to go. his way isn't half bad. he's a sweet little dude. i'm calm & enjoying parenthood like never before. (the role AND the nbc sitcom. have you watched it? its great.) this is one of my favorite pictures from abram's birth. he hadn't really cried until they took him over to weigh & poke at him, and when he did, matt started quietly talking to him & he shut right up to listen to the voice that had been saying "goodnight little dude" everynight.
