"a portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014"
augustus: if there is one game you could play all day, "where's the ball?" would be it. do you know how many times a day we play this? and how many times i have to come up with different ways to play the exact same game? we simply ask you "hey gus, where's the ball?" and you storm through the house as fast as you can trying to find it for us. you are so good at finding it and then sending it our way. it makes this mama heart wonder if you were made to be a sports star.
will you love soccer? will you love baseball? or will you simply love everything and will everything excite you as much as finding a ball does now?
gosh, i hope so. because i'd love to always continue spending my days taking in the way you feel life.
there's nothing in the world like it. nothing quite like it all.
