Yes…. on Easter Evening this happened for the first time: at 14 months and 4 days Grady posted on all fours all by himself, and yes TEARS burst through my eyes. I wish for a moment you could know how this feels, or maybe you do and you can just bask in the joy we feel. We have been working on this and waiting on him to pull his legs underneath himself with patience….. He was so proud of himself, and he started to rock back and forth, with the biggest smile in the world.
Paul and I never went on a honeymoon since he was in the police academy when we married, but this week we are leaving the kids for the first time for three nights to attend one of my best friends wedding in Orlando. I will have the honor to read scripture at her ceremony.
1.) I have never left Grady for more than a few hours (ahhhhhh) 2.) I weaned him onto a bottle so we could take this trip, I will be pumping away in Florida 3.) I have never been to Disney 4.) I haven’t had a night with just Paul in 4 years (woop woop) 5.) I am going to miss them terribly. OY!
Be home soon little ones. I love you!!! (Big thanks to everyone who is making this happen for us!)
