Happy Birthday, Papa

Despite this week’s heartbreaking news, today is a very special day for a very special man that I love to pieces and want to honor. My brilliant father turns 60 years old. To celebrate, Wito has prepared a very special performance.

    Whoorl – your post has inspired me to ask – have you read The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan? I hope so…it would be so up your alley. And if not, go read it now! :)

    Wito is ADORABLE!! He’s so smart! I was wondering when you began to notice his incredible memory. My son is 18 months and while he’s no Wito (no letter recognition yet!!), he is showing signs of a good memory-before we turn the page of his books he often tells us what’s on the next page! Did Wito do this?
