My Son Turned One Today (and where the heck did the last year go?)

While his big party was last Saturday, Julian’s actual birthday is today, November 21. I remember his birth like it was yesterday. Laura was six centimeters dilated and didn’t even know it. Doc said baby was ready to come out. I left work and headed up to Mount Sinai hospital. Six hours later: Julian Frank Kalehoff.


While Julian is special because he’s my son, he’s especially special because he lights up the room wherever he goes. He has a strong tendency to make people smile and let down their guard, just with his presence. He’s budding into an incredible personality, and he’s handsome, too. He’s very much a person I only wish I could be. Happy birthday, Julian!


Now, someone please tell me: WHERE THE HECK DID THE LAST YEAR GO?
