Dante, years 1-3

I don't have nearly the number of pictures of Dante that I do of everyone else, unfortunately.
For anyone that knows the situation, Dante was a secret until after Anthony died.
Anthony had been cheating on me.
And although I welcomed Holden into my life with an open arms and an open heart, I just couldn't do the same for Dante because I feel so resentful about him for so long.
I regret very few things about the past, and this is one of those things.
Obviously, Anthony was sooooo very wrong for cheating.
But I was wrong for holding it against Dante for the first year of his life.
None of it was his fault, and he didn't deserve to be an outcast because of the wrongdoings of others.
I can't ever take back what happened in the past, but I've been trying to make up for it for the past 3 years, and now I can honestly say that Dante is just as much a part of my family and my heart as the other kids are.
It means so much to me <3

Anyway, a tribute to Dante's fourth birthday, tomorrow, here are some pictures of the skinny man, Dante dude :o)
