Some highlights from the last six months:
*Javi smiling at me for the first time on Christmas Eve
*Traveling to Florida, New Jersey, Canada and New York City with an infant.
*Marveling at the beautiful blue eyes our baby has.
*Watching how much Javi loves his daddy. He wakes himself up every morning just to see Lover before he goes to work.
*All the little sounds and noises he makes, and how he cracks himself up with them.
*People’s reaction when they ask how old he is… some variation of “he’s so… healthy!” because of his size.
*His open mouthed, slobbery “kisses”, offered to any girl he finds pretty.
