And as I stare into this little guys eye as it slowly opens to see what all the fuss is about… Becca turns to me and in her matter of fact tone, states “Oh and by the way, you’re the Godmother and Doug’s Godfather.”
I just watched my Godson come into this world. Talk about the cherry on top that I never expected!
