On a recent stroller walk, we passed by the pavilion in which we held Liam's first birthday party. He definitely recognized it -- and he kept staring at it. Yes, that was the place where friends and family gathered to celebrate his first year of life!
I crouched down beside him as we stopped and looked at the pavilion, reminding him that that blessed day will always be in my heart! He smiled and waved, and I knew that--in his mind's eye--he was seeing all of us. :)
