(Not sure why I can’t rotate this, but you can at least embiggen it.)

It’s my mom’s birthday, too; I tried to call her but missed her. Tomorrow.

She got the news of Parker’s safe though early delivery into the world on her 80th birthday, and now he’s a bouncy little boy who, as we Skyped tonight, sat down at his daddy’s keyboard, proclaimed with a big grin, “BOOM!” and played Rachmaninoff.

Meaning, both hands spread wide, arms out straight in happy anticipation, and then pouncing on the keys. BOOM! My little boy‘s little boy, following right in his footsteps. And his mom’s, with that smile that melts every heart in a hundred miles.

Oh! Joy to the world! I bet that was so much fun to see and hear. Happy happy boy!

I can’t believe how big he is already! What a cutie! Happy birthday wishes coming his way.

Took the stepson two out for BBQ for his 21 birthday (his was the 18th). I must warn you, as you will know, they grow up and eat almost a whole American feast at famous Dave’s by themselves!

I missed this yesterday when in Europe it was 20 12, 2012.
Hope your mom enjoyed her special day. And love that sweater Big Man is wearing!

Love the picture (and that seems the right orientation — if he’s like Mr Cute he probably seems to have the ability to walk right up the walls!)

Your LITTLE boy?
I agree with Bev. He should be able to walk right up the wall! However, watch your email.
