Today I cried because my little brother is moving across the country in the morning. He has grown from the little boy I could not stand as a child, into such a respectable decent man. I need more decent men in my life right now and it sucks that he is leaving.
Today I cried because my little boy woke up this morning and simply WALKED away from his crib. Then he stood there for a few moments and then pointed at the light and said "wow." He is getting so big, and so old, so fast. I just feel the weight of his first birthday looming in my mind at all times. 16 days. Just 16 days away.
