Days of Thanks #4
I am grateful that my 18-month-old (I have an 18-month-old-- for a while, it seemed I might never be able to say that) is already developing a keen appreciation of the wonders of the outdoors. Ed took him outside this evening at the tail end of sunset, when just a touch of light remained on the horizon and a few stars already shone in the sky. When they came back inside, Jackson kept saying, "Outside! Stars!" over and over until we took him back out again. This continued for several trips back out into the chilly night until it was finally time to eat. With this kind of beginning, I so look forward to the amazing life we will share together.
