But we hear from him often throughout the day. I wrote the following blip in his baby book and I just thought I'd include it here. It's kind of a gem:
So Julian, you have a special friend these days. He might even be your BEST friend, for now. He at least will always be a part of you, no matter what. He is... your finger. He has his own little [high-pitched] voice and you've named him. Ready? It's... Thinger.
I love this SO MUCH, i cannot even tell you. It's just better than anything in my wildest dreams.
The bonus, the icing on that little cake is how, whenever you wash your hands, Thinger cries out in his little voice, "Oww! I got soap in my eyes!" or, "I don't want to take a shower..."
And i pause in that moment, stare reflectively and think, my life could not possibly be better.
