Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away… There were a bunch of twenty-something quasi-grown-ups running around Boston, trying to find their way. I was one of those, new to Boston, anxious to make friends. One of the earliest people I met introduced me to this guy–creative (check out his stuff here), friendly, always ready to lend a hand, and possessor of a giant apartment where there was frequently a party.
Fast forward a lifetime. Now we are expected to be mostly all grown up.
He met a smart and beautiful woman and took a crash course in true love. They met and married and had a baby, all at light speed. Dad passed on his obsession with comic books and all things Star Wars to their son, L. Big brother L is nearly 6 and when I asked him if he thought that he loved Star Wars and superheroes because of the dad he got or if he just got the perfect dad, he said that he got the Perfect Dad. And it is true, after L came I wondered why no one had given this guy a kid a long time ago. He’s a natural.
Many years later these two announced that L would be a big brother by posting a video of them telling their ecstatic son that they would be bringing home a baby just as he had hoped. He could barely believe his good luck. Mom was excited to learn that, after coming from a family of girls, she would be giving L a little sister. And the wait was on… Well, everyone is truly in their element with the arrival of the forth family member, little Miss C. She was a trooper throughout her shoot, cuddling so cutely with all her family members–L cannot take his eyes off her (well, unless there is a light saber around).
Mom and Dad are remembering the realities of having an infant in the household–and also just how fast it all goes by. Everyone is savoring C’s arrival and enjoying each fun phase of her growing up. And soon she will be ready for her Jedi training.
It was so much fun hanging out with you and meeting your newest family member.
