Well, there is Carter to think about of course. And Trevor certainly. Both Charlie's, and Austin, and everybody else's boys. But you gotta admit...he DEFINITELY ranks up there, don't you think? I mean...just look at that precious face. So CUTE.
Anyway, I just had to share this picture, taken via studio photographer a couple of weeks ago. Note the angle...I guess so you can't see the scar. Hard to believe this little guy looked like this a little over 2 months ago, isn't it?
Yeah...very, very hard to believe. I prefer the first picture too. :) But it really doesn't matter, I'll take him any way I can have him. That's the truth of it. No matter what has happened, no matter what will happen, nothing would ever keep me from loving this kid or Carter as much as I do.
It does get frustrating, this journey of having a child with 'special' circumstances, we do get tired. But hell, having so-called 'typical' kids is draining at times as well. We can at times be angry and we can at times be sad. We are sometimes grateful and we are sometimes resentful. We are sometimes jealous and we are sometimes fortunate. We are sometimes proud of ourselves, we are sometimes ashamed to the core for what we can, at times, feel.
But we never, EVER, doubt, that we would take a bullet for our kids. And neither should you.
No matter what.
