Dear Graham 2010
All this time I've seen you as my baby. I know, it's kind of weird since I've had two babies since I had you, but you were my baby for 3.5 years after Malachi, and you just sort of always held that place in my heart.
But at the same time, precious, my heart leaps to see you grow. This year has been absolutely incredible. We found out that you have a special set of skills and personality traits known as Asperger's, and we're all understanding one another so much more now. You met a counselor and bonded with him from the very first meeting, and several months in to counseling and neurotherapy, I feel like I'm getting my Grammy back. You talk to us more, you enjoy life more, you're more confident, and you're making friends!
Happy Birthday, Nay-nay. You're mama's big boy!
