the little fry

Richard’s dad is famous for making up little songs about his kids. Richard is following in his footsteps and sings all the time:

“Si, Si, the little fry, such an amazing little guy.”

He’s four months old. Four and a half months actually, I’m a bit behind. He’s got a raspy little voice and rusty hair which has earned him various other nicknames.

My co-worker has one little boy and is thinking about having a second but has the same fear every parent has. Can I possibly love another baby as much as the baby I already have? For me the fear is more like this: Did I really love my other babies as much as I love my most recent baby?
He delights me and I know for sure because of recent experiences that I am more grateful each day to have him than I was with my other children. I don’t take him for granted. Kind of ironic considering he wasn’t “planned”…

  1. Your comment about wondering if you loved your other babies as much as you do your most recent baby is so true!! I find myself having that same thought almost daily. Simon is a little cutie!
