This week, my son Ian turned one year old. It is quite humbling when I step back and consider that I am now the proud daddy of a one year old boy and a two-and-a-half year old daughter (No worries, we have no plans for any more additions to the brood). The past 2.5 years have obviously been amazingly crazy with the addition of Rebecca and Ian to our family, but it has also been the most wonderful and humbling experience. Rebecca just never ceases to amaze with her own personal interpretations of the English language and the joy that she brings to everyone she comes in contact with. Ian is quietly coming into his own. The hardest part is to come to grips with the fact that he is now a year old and no longer that 3 month old munchkin. Now if I can only get my career and job situation back in order so we can get back to reality, that would be the most wonderful New Year’s gift!
