Nathaniel Cosme’s First Birthday

Today is a big day. Nathaniel Javier Cosme turns ONE! It was exactly one year ago, I was basking in the nude at D’Anza Springs Resort in the California desert, and Kate called me with the big news. I ws thrilled for her then and remain in love with my little grandson.

Nathan has been a wonderful addition to our family, he’s growing up fast, walking around the yard, playing with trucks and toys, and mouthing what almost are words. Today we’re having a big family party to celebrate his first birthday. We’ll have a big crowd on hand to barbecue in the yard. Kate and Francisco have discovered the joys of gardening–perfect timing–and the place looks wonderful with new plantings and the new lawn coming up in old patches.
