Justin's First Birthday

Yesterday was Justin's first birthday. The kids took him to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch. And they will have a party for him at his other Grammy's house today. I can't wait to see him again. I babysat for him the other night. I can't believe how he's grown. I still remember January 15 last year when we were at the hospital, peering at him through the nursery window.

The other day the time I spent with him while babysitting was special. I wish that I could have bottled it and whenever I needed a boost, I could open it and relive it. It started when I walked in and got a huge smile from him. I've probably already mentioned that he is a big Sesame Street fan. We watched some Sesame Street, played with his toys from Christmas, and he sat on the couch next to me with my arm around him for the longest time. Then when I thought he might be getting tired, he lay down on the couch covered with his favorite blankie. I rubbed his little feet for him, counting his baby toes! Of course, he wasn't quite asleep when his Mommy came home and he sat up and gave her the biggest grin! He loves his Mommy and Daddy and I can see the love they have for him, too!

I've made some progress on my round ripple - I've taken the time at lunch to work on it. I'll have to post a photo when it's done. I also want to pick up the sweetheart ripple again. I definitely can't wait until that is finished. What's finished so far is gorgeous!
