I was watching some videos late night last night and I just had to share this with you all. That face!! That voice!! Love love love.

I actually had a good day today overall. My sister-in-law, Debi, joined me in NYC for a seminar about event-planning and risk management for non-profit executives today. There were a couple of presentations on the agenda that didn't apply to the TLC foundation, so we also snuck out to do some shopping for new charitable products we will be selling. More on that soon!
However, on my way to pick her up it was crisp and cold but really sunny and beautiful outside. I couldn't help but groan to myself and roll my eyes about the annoying, shiny, happy day ahead of us. I was thinking sad thoughts and feeling grateful that at least it was winter after Ty passed away - because the weather matches my misery - while thinking how much I hate that Spring is here. Tulips, birds, life renewed... I was just hating the idea of it! Right in the middle of these dark thoughts, a bird flew right into my windshield. Probably died :( It made me feel like such a Scrooge. Just my LUCK! I will try not to hate Spring anymore, I promise (no guarantees, of course).
Yesterday, Gavin told me that he wishes we had a family. I told him we are a family, me, daddy and him and Ty in heaven. Then I asked him, "Why do you say that, do you wish you had another brother or sister?" and he said, "Yes. I wish I had a new brother named Ty. With spikey hair and a boo-boo on his head." All I could say was, "me too." Then, today he told me that he wants his whole family again. He was riding in the back seat of my car and he said "because I like when Ty sits there, and Mely sits there!" He was smiling, and just stated it very matter-of-factly. He is my sweet boy and I feel so bad that he is lonely without his brother. It breaks my already shattered/shredded/so-much-more-than-broken heart.
We are taking him with us to DC this weekend to see his friend Luke (below) while Lou and I have some foundation business to take care of. Looking forward to filling you in on some exciting announcements in the world of childhood cancer that are on the horizon.
Goodnight to my sweet angel baby. Love you all and thank you for your continued support! XOXO. Cindy
