I can honestly say I don't have a favorite. I think it's because there is such a huge age difference. Each boy requires different things from me. Jimmy is so independent and the Doodle requires so much care.
Jimmy had 6 1/2 years of complete devotion when he was little. He was our first. He was our favorite. I remember telling Jim when I was pregnant with the Doodle I didn't think I would be able to love him as much as I loved Jimmy; but I do. The capacity of the human heart and spirit is amazing.
I look at this picture and can't believe that everything I love, cherish and worry about in the world can fit into my bed.
