Even if you are the youngest, you don't have to take nothin from nobody

Happy first birthday, my dear, dear Solo.

Taking care of business

Last night I turned to Chinua and said, "We survived a year of Solo." That is your personality my love.  Your little force has lighted up our whole world.  We don't know what we did without you with us, yelling in all of our faces and giving us those forceful kisses of yours.

Sometimes when I look at you I think my heart will bust wide open.  That day, a year ago, you made all of our hearts a little wider. We love you.
