Newtown, One Year Later: Honoring a 7-Year-Old's Kindness with Foundation in His Memory

Mark Barden still cannot believe his son Daniel is no longer here to cuddle on snowy winter mornings or challenge him to foosball games before school.

"In those first few seconds when I'm awake, I still have to think, 'Was this whole thing just a horrible dream?' " he says. "I still find myself trying to comprehend it, as we all are."

Barden lost his 7-year-old son on Dec. 14, 2012, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza stormed into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., killing 20 first graders, including Daniel, and six educators before turning the gun on himself.

Two is an exciting age for children. By this stage of development, most toddlers are learning how to play with blocks, ride tricycles, and jump off of things. Or, if they're this amazing kid, they're making impossible basketball shots look ridiculously easy.

Two-year-old Titus Ashby originally came to the Internet's attention in February (almost half his lifetime ago) when the first video of his amazing trick shots gained more than 13 million views. Since then, little Titus has released several more videos, battled Kobe Bryant and been hit in the face on Fox & Friends. Ouch. (No worries, folks, he's fine.)

Just over four months into his marriage to Justin Mikita, Jesse Tyler Ferguson happily admits that he has yet to abandon that coveted honeymoon phase.

But like many newly married couples, the two are finding it increasingly hard to ignore the pitter-patter of just about any feet.

"We're baby crazy right now," the Modern Family star told PEOPLE while hosting the grand opening of the couple's Tie the Knot store at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles on Thursday.

"We see kids with families walking around, and if those parents look away for too long, someone has to hold us back to not steal them."

Playing a mom in her new film The Truth About Emanuel stirred up some maternal instincts for Jessica Biel.

"Every woman has some kind of intuition of how they'd interact with a child," she told PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of the film on Wednesday.

"I feel comfortable around kids, so I was kind of rolling with that idea," the actress admits.

Wearing a two-piece lace skirt and cropped top by Giambattista Valli topped with a leather jacket, Biel, 31, – who married Justin Timberlake in a romantic Italian ceremony in October 2012 – says she's open to having kids of her own, but she hasn't put a deadline on it.
