I had a fun weekend with my husband and son. We took a get away, just an hour away in Columbus. We went to COSI and out to dinner and did a little shopping. It was nice just to be away from everything, even if we were only gone for one day.

I was reading some other people's posts today, and mine don't seem nearly so exciting, and they tend to be much shorter. I don't really care, it's more a comment than anything. It's just nice to have a place to jot down a few thoughts and maybe hear back from a few people. It's kind of cool in a way to be able to listen in on the thoughts of someone you know nothing about and who could be anywhere in the world.

Walk in the Woods

Had alovely walk this morning with my husband and son. We took a toddler sized walk. His legs are still little so he can't go as far. We were also walking uphill part of the way, which is still difficult for him, but he was a trooper. He took a rock from the driveway, which he carried the whole way. He also found a stick, which he tried to drop, but Dad kept picking it back up. The rock was finally liberated back at the house in his favorite place. We have a stone that's been carved out by water over the years. He likes to drop rocks in it and splash his hand in the water. Right now it's iced over, so he just slides his hand over the ice and tries to pick the rocks out of it. He also likes to watch the dogs when we are walking. They are a great motivator to keep him moving forward. (Although they sometimes go off the path and lure him in the wrong direction.) So far he mostly stays on the path since it's easier to walk on. Given time and more practice, I'm sure he'll be off exporing in every direction soon.

Open Heart Verbage

Another posting has inspired me to be mushy because of Valentine's Day (even though I'm a little late.) I have much to be thankful for this year (I know, I know, it's not Thanksgiving.) There are so many people who have shown their love and support these past years, through my pregnancy, while giving birth, bringing up this little bundle of joy (who just turned one) that I want them all to know how much I appreciate them and love them. I'm a little reticent with expressing my feeling in person, so if said people are reading this then, yes it applies to you. It's hard to understand how much a parent loves their child until they have one themselves. (Hey, I almost had a sentence without parethesis at the end, but I wouldn't want to ruin a good trend like this.) Love multiplies and grows a little more with each passing day (Okay, I'm done being mushy now, boy I was really gushing there for a minute.)
