Year of the Pip

Today is our youngest son’s first birthday. His real name is Andrew Peregrin Goff, with Peregrin spelled like the hobbit from Lord of the Rings, but everyone pretty much calls him “Pip”. He’s one of the happiest, most laughy kids I’ve ever met, which helps when he’s waking you up at 2am. Since it’s his birthday, I’m going to post some pictures from throughout the year.

    A child has unlimited potential, sort of like a planet. Looking at a child fills your heart with hope and actually makes you hate the naysayers. But then you have to forgive them their crippled imagination. You can only show them… and they will claim they knew it all along.
