Perfect Imperfections

You know what every parent says when you ask them, "Do you want a boy or a girl?"
Well, almost every parent. 
We all say the same thing. 
"I want a healthy baby."
And that is the truth. We all want healthy babies! 

I had a moment in the hospital when I looked at Keating and realized that something wasn't "perfect".
He had 10 fingers, 10 toes, his face was totally sweet and then I saw his right ear. 
"What is that?" "Why does it look like that?" "Is his hearing effected?" 

As soon as I got the hearing screening results back - which he passed with 100% (He is already good at test taking), my fears were gone. The doctors told us it was totally cosmetic and they could refer us to someone who could fix it. 
Fix it!? That is seriously ridiculous! 

I looked at that sweet little notch in his ear and let him know that it was something that would set him apart. Something that would be "his thing". This is a perfect imperfection. 
Also, it will either save us from the earring conversation completely, which we will have to consider, since his dad had earrings...or he will want two in that lobe! Either way, we love it and will not consider "fixing" it!

Thanks for stopping by!
