Idle Tuesday

It has been rainy today. On and off, but enough to keep me and Sam from leaving the house. We've just hung out today, a comfortable companionship, just Sam and Mom.

In the afternoon, Courtney and Eve came over for a visit which gave Courtney and I a chance to visit and the babies could play. As I type this, I realize that I won't be able to type "babies" for much longer when describing Evelina and Sam. They will soon be "toddlers" which thrills me and makes me want to puke all at the same time. Eve has her second top tooth breaking through and I get the same feelings for her that I do regarding the "T" word.

I recorded some of Sam and Eve's play-time antics today. I love to video-log Sam's life because even now, I love to watch from the beginning and see how much he has grown and changed.

And has he ever.

Today, Sam took his first step. He stood unassisted for quite some time and Courtney and I watched as he shakily lifted his right foot and placed a few inches in front of him before falling forward on his knees. I shrieked in delight and horror as I realized that MY SON WILL SOON BE WALKING. I looked at her and said, "That counted right? Oh yeah, that SO counted."

I'm in excited and nervous delight over Sam's new milestone. I am overflowing with joy that I was able to witness his first step, and a bit sad the Rob couldn't be here for it as well. But mostly I'm thinking in my head, "Ohmygod my son is going to walk soon and then he'll be running and dating and borrowing the car ohmygod the speed and madness of it all, make it stop!"

So yeah. Cool day.
