Today we had the pleasure of spending some time with my friend Christine and her children Matthew and Natalie. Matthew is one of my favorite little boys in the world. I feel a special bond to him. When he was tiny, I had the pleasure of taking care of him from when he was about 2 months old until his first birthday. He is the only child, besides my own, that I have ever spent that much time with. He was an absolutely beautiful baby, and has grown into a wonderful, smart, funny, respectful, and kind, beautiful young man of 11. Natalie is a doll...a precious little doll. I didn't get to spend nearly the time with her when she was smaller that I did with Matthew, but I know she is a sweet, loving, beautiful little girl, with a million dollar smile.
