I woke up really early because my phone was beeping. It was so early, the light was streaming straight into my room through the blinds. So everything looked white and pretty. And it was white and pretty because my brother had sent a text message announcing baby D's birth earlier that morning.
And he is so wonderful. We've had some good times in the past year. He's a kid who knows how to laugh, he enjoys swimming & pinwheels, and on occasion he's been known to help me grade papers.
