You know how when a baby is first born and till they are about 3, once they've been potty trained, you keep track of every milestone? Everything is a big deal and the dates are jotted down, you take pictures of them doing all the new things they do, and cherish every memory. Then once they get to where they aren't doing as many new things so often, the milestone memories slow down. There is the first day of first grade, losing their first baby tooth, and a few other things, but not as many new, exciting things as when they were a baby. Well, yesterday marked a huge milestone day in my family's life. Our little Audrey, first born grandchild, and niece in the Christensen family, was baptized.
I compare that to the milestones I am watching my son accomplish. Right now we are anticapating new teeth, and trying to get him to sit up for more than a minute before his heavy head makes him fall forward. It's amazing to be an observer of babies as they grow, and older children as they start to become litlle adults. Being a member of the church is a big responsibility, and one that I am excited to watch Audrey discover. Just like sitting up is a big deal too. I'm so proud to be a mommy and an auntie who has such precious babies in her life. So cheers to my Auj and my Chasey who are such fantastic little people. I sure love you both!!
