So little D, thank you for teaching me life's greatest lessons and being the little Buddha in my life- you always look so ancient and all-knowing. Thank you for being kind to me when I'm having a bad day and giving me lots of kisses. Thank you for loving me when I am unlovable. Thanks for telling me in your own way to slow down and smell the flowers and taking naps with me when we should be productive (you chewing your bone and me writing a paper). Thanks for having the cutest little dwarf walk on Earth and not having a tail to chase (just a little stump- you too smart for that anyway!).
But really, I am so happy your in my life and I and can't wait to snuggle with you on cozy winter nights for many years to come.
