    Our son is so tender, so sweet, and SO UNPREDICTABLE!  Each summer (and weekend) morning has begun the same so far.  I wake up about 15 minutes before Jude does.  I’ll hear him pad down the hallway and he opens our door slllooowwly.  Soon I’ll see the top of his little head peeping around the […]

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
