He was five weeks old when I brought him into the office I would be returning to far too f#$kin' quickly. She had a 5-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl. She glommed onto my baby so quickly. So damn quickly. At the time, it was funny. And scary.
Fast forward more than 13 years. There is a baby who came to visit Saturday. A baby who is the grandchild of my children's real mother. A baby who is the grandson of the man for whom Youngest is named.
It goes too fast. I had tears in my eyes when I recounted to his mom the episode when Eldest was only five weeks old. Mothers give birth to children who grow up so fast. So fast.
Oliver, you are beyond loved. Mothers, everywhere, hold your babies tightly.
