Prince Thomas

This baby boy was born to my oldest daughter and her husband in February almost one year ago. Our first grandson, the first great-grandson, the first nephew, the first great and great-great nephew...and the first boy in a family of mostly girls and women. You see why I call him the prince. What a wonder to have a new baby in the family! How incredible to see your daughter and son-in-law become amazing parents...overnight!! I know he has turned their lives upside down and inside out in a good way and he gives us all cause to think about family. How we live and interact with each other as a family and support his growth will make a difference in the man that he will someday become. I wish for us all love and patience and kindness as well as joy and silliness and play for our own lives and for his.
