A Pair of Big Brown Eyes.

One year ago today Jeff and I sat at computers- he at Argonne, I in our dining room/office- and downloaded and opened a pdf containing Tommy's picture together. Both of our reactions were: "He's a cute little guy."

The pictures we received weren't the best, especially now that we know Tommy and how much character he has, but they were enough for us to fall in love. It was the eyes that got me. They still get me every time.

We were told that the pictures were taken about a month apart. One at twelve months and one at thirteen months. He is older in the picture on the left (we thought the opposite but Sister insisted).

It's been one year since we first laid eyes on Tommy. His presence in our lives has made them fuller, richer, and far more exhausting! He is worth every minute of lost sleep, the huge investment in spray-n-wash, and countless toy related-injuries (how do they end up in such weird places?). We love our darling boy!
