When I got there we sat down and talked and I heard the sounds of a baby in the other room.  I asked her if there was a baby in her house. She said yes and pointed to the other room.  I ran in to see a most precious little boy whom I swooped into my arms and ran to the mirror asking him, "Who is that".  To my dismay, he did not look at me or the mirror.
