The beginning of our life with kids started 12 years ago. As I was being admitted to the hospital, my doctor warned us that our baby might have problems because I wasn't term for another six weeks. Well, we were blessed with a healthy boy and the tiniest of our children. He was a whopping four pounds thirteen ounces on his journey home to our efficiency apartment a week later. In a mere six hundred square feet our baby seemed the perfect size. He took up a small amount of space and could sleep in a stroller in the hall and bathroom vanity area which couldn't really be differentiated from the living room and dining room. In a bed with wheels, when Alex started to exercise his vocal chords we could roll him into the galley kitchen. We had it made.
What a thoughtful, disciplined and hardworking young man he is today. Happy 12th birthday, Alpha Alex.
