So let's go back to sweet darling Piero's birthday. Here's his simple but fun cake:
"Here I am!" Check out how he pushes his brothers aside. Heehee.
I like how assertive he is. Piero has a very big personality. I know that in photos he's always smiling gently, like he's the sweetest boy in the world, but he's actually quite the dominant personality, always bullying his older brothers about.
I'm glad Vince and I work from home. We're still able to focus on Piero while attending to our other boys. Still, it's been a breathless year. We've been up to our necks in childcare. Three kids all under 5! We're overwhelmed! But, yes, despite the chaos, the mess, the exhaustion, we're gloriously happy. Piero was that final piece. He truly made us finally go, "At last. Our family is complete!"
Happy birthday, dearest Piero! Oh, the joy you've brought to me, your Papa and your brothers! You are perfect in every way and it's remarkable how you keep getting more amazing every day. How lucky are we to have you in our crazy life. May you always be strong and healthy, may you always have love and friendship surround you, may you be filled with wisdom and compassion, and may you bring joy to others as you've brought joy to us. Happy birthday!
