this post that you are reading is post #70. that doesn't include the number of posts on previous blogs; it is exclusive to nico's lifespan. the chunky monkey has been with us for four months now and our life as a family has shifted and evolved, becoming sweeter with this little creature who, when properly entertained, flaps his arms like a bird. when he was born we thought he looked just like sebastian but now, though there is a similarity (and an absolute adoration of his older brother), he is his own person. his eyes slant downwards when he smiles or laughs, he's extremely ticklish under the chin, and he is plumper and juicier than his onisan. right now, he's an expert in flipping over and pushing himself up and if he starts laughing whenever he's up, then he falls over, which is priceless. in short, he's nico. happy 4 months, my little one . i couldn't imagine the world without you.
