Happy Birthday, Hiram!

Today in the alternate universe of Summer Park, Garrett and Rachel Wolfstrom’s first born turns one!

I’m already seeing bits and pieces of what he’ll be like as an adult. He’s the quietest of the offspring from the first two books, though I think Alexis might have him beat in seriousness.

The twins won’t be arriving for a bit yet, so Hiram is enjoying the one-on-one time with his parents. Everyone’s households will be a lot noisier once Dylan and Dierdre arrive! He’s also getting closer with Alexis, who will be one of his closest friends throughout his life.

Much of that was because Dante is so dear to me.
