It has been a minute but life might just begin returning to normal ... whatever normal is.
In the meantime ... while I've been absent, we were blessed with another grandson. Dominic Rai was born to Alyx and Tarron on October 15th.
I love how babies change so quickly. Although I am the absolute worst at seeing someone's nose or eyes in a new little cherub ... even the facial expressions of this newest little love mimic his older brother.
I've been absentee in birthday celebrations ... births ...all of that great stuff.
So a belated welcome to the world little one ... and a belated birthday wish to your mom!
