This is my chubby happy one, Cora. She thought that wearing dad’s hat was the most hilarious thing she’d experienced in her little baby life, but she didn’t always think I was so hilarious. For the first few months of her life the sight of my face prompted intense screaming, crying, and dramatics. We’ve become pretty good buddies lately though. She laughs at all my cheesy jokes, always lights up with a smile when we see each other, and loves to jabber at me as if she’s telling me about all the fun things she’s done during the day. She’s coming into her own more and more every day and I’m excited to get to know what’s she’s got in store for the world. Her smile reminds me that none of the other crap I think or stress about really matters in the grand scheme.
