Kate has started to turn on her side more this week. This is a real milestone especially if she knows she's doing it and does it intentionally. Milestones are important in life. We need to celebrate them. I remember when I first learned how to ride a bike with no training wheels. My friend Dan really whooped it up. I felt very special. Let's make sure we celebrate our own milestones and those of our kids and grand kids. Life just seems more special when we do. So Kate you are going to get a special hug and a song from me today. You have taken another step in the process of growing up and I have noticed.
~ Your proud grandpa, Poppi
