Day 518: Baby Steps

Yeah, I'm not talking about me there.  So far, I'm still taking giant leaps.  As in, I feel like a normal person again.  Normal is awesome!!!!

No, I'm talking about this little happy pants:

This is how absolutely thrilled he was at last night's fishing trip.  There was goose poop ALL. OVER. THE. GROUND.  So, he was stuck up there.

Today, however, he was all over the place.  Mostly, throwing fits and tantrums.  So, he and I hung out in the foyer during quite a bit of church.  Which is when he decided to take (get ready, get ready, drum roll, please...) HIS FIRST STEPS!

A part of me is a little bit sad, but what kind of mom would I be if it wasn't a Joyful Moment to see my baby take his first steps?  Two of them to be exact.  I was the only one there, so I tried to get him to reproduce it for HH tonight, but no dice.

Ah, well, I have a feeling he'll take some more one of these days.  And then HH will get to witness the sweetness of it.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments full of sweetness!

HURRAY for Baby B!!!!!

We've had a wonderful day - your big sis stopped by unexpectedly, we walked to BV Falls with your sis in law and her cuties, we taught a lesson on missionaries to our sweet 7 year olds, and I did better than usual in choir practice - lots of JM's.

Today my JM was staying up late with my 3 older kids and watching fireworks and listening to the music program made to go along with it from 10pm to 10:30pm. I NEVER let my kids stay up late. But I did tonight and it was a BLAST! And made me so grateful again for the freedoms we enjoy in our wonderful country. This is one of my favorite holidays.
