as we celebrate daily the little accomplishments of our son as he is learning to be a human, it is strange to contemplate death.
j's grandmother passed away tonight. when i heard the news, i cried. even when death is a celebration because we know that the person is finally home and hanging out with Jesus, it is still hard to say goodbye. it is hard to know that they are now just a group of stories, memories. all we have of them is what we already had. there is pain in that. her life has ended.
jake's is just beginning. that is something else to celebrate.
so is the fact that he sat up by himself for about a half an hour today. he's such a stud.
