A Gift



When people say that "Children are a gift from God," they are talking about This One.

A Week of Milestones

It has been quite a week in our house. BB has had three significant "firsts". I'm not usually one of those who wants to Freeze time because they "grow up too fast", but it might be worth a blog entry to at least Mark time. My first born. My baby boy.

Lost his first tooth.



Rode on his first rollercoaster.



Rode his bicycle without those pesky training wheels.

A Day Just Like Today. Or a Week Just Like This Week, I suppose.

Ciao a tutti.

Flower girly



In April, DS was a flower girl in Jeff's lovely niece's wedding. Apparently it was kind of Emily--the bride--to join us, since DS referred to it beforehand and in the two months since as "her" wedding, as in "Can you believe it, that Cousin Emily came to my wedding? And she wore a pretty white dress just like me? Can you just believe it?"

The flower petals were the most precisely and evenly spaced petals in the history of flower girling. When DS dropped each one, she would check the spacing from the previous petal and go back and rearrange it if necessary. Not a quick walk down the aisle, but that is okay, since she had asked Gran to have a glass of water awaiting her at the end of the aisle in case she got thirsty from the long walk.
