When we get to Lily's preschool, the kids immediately recognize it. Lily says, "We're here!" and Gamma yells, "BALL!" He knows where we are. He knows that there will be balls in the grass.
We sign Lily in and head home. I turn on the radio and we sing. And Gamma jabbers the whole way home. We get home and I get him out of the car. I press my lips to his delicious baby cheek and breathe him in.
Oh baby that I never thought I'd have, how I adore you. Je t'aime. Mi amore. How I treasure your hugs.
I can't believe when Lily was his age, I also had a newborn to care for. He takes so much out of me. Every second is worth it. I think about the past two years, and they were hard. But as much of a challenge as it has been, I would not change a thing.
