Gotcha: Then and Now

It’s Gotcha Day. Seven years ago today we took possession of our kid. Sometimes I feel really sentimental on this day. Sometimes, I feel like every other mother of a little boy: WHY MUST YOU MAKE SO MUCH NOISE?!

Today seems like day to see all of us: then and now.

Seven Years Ago Today

Maybe if I open *my* mouth a little, then he'll understand what to do and take this pacifier and STOP CRYING!

Look kid, I have no idea what I'm doing. But just stay alive for awhile and surely we can figure this out.

This morning, before the traditional cake for breakfast on Gotcha Day, when I told him the story of how he came to be a member of our family. He’s overcome with emotion.

Yes, it was a beautiful day. You loved me so much. Can I just have the cake now?
