Happy Birthday Little Tyke

A year ago our son was born ...
We didn't even know it,
Not for a week later almost.
The wee hours of Nov. 15.
We met him on Ari's birthday,
Nov. 24. And tomorrow
We'll be celebrating both
Birthdays, as well as my grandpa's,
in Montreal, with Little Tyke's
Great Grandparents.
Next week, the same,
With his grandparents,
My dear friend Alex (hopefully)
And my cousin Allison.
Such a loved little guy,
So far from the 5 lb. bundle
Who fit easily in one arm
And wouldn't eat.
Happy Birthday my baby boy ...
And somewhere out there,
I know there's someone else
Thinking of this day,
Who won't be here to celebrate,
But to whom we are
Eternally Grateful.
From one mother to another,
For my son,
For our son,
From the bottom of my heart,
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I have my fingers crossed that I'll be able to make it. There's a story there (will explain in an email lol).
