This is the first time I've ever seen a picture of Ira without his breathing apparatus. He is such a cute baby. It's so nice to be able to see all of his face!
This is a small victory, like all the others before it. The smallness can seem paltry. Insignificant. Swallowed up in the greater sense of the loss of what might have been otherwise. But it can also be a light, shining in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it.
