One day last week Porter came into my room to show me his so-loose tooth. I paused sorting out some things from Isaac's changing table, and Porter sat down up close beside me on the floor. "Look!" he said as he wiggled it, just as he'd said and done several times over the last few weeks. "Look, It wiggles all the way... " And then, out it came!
And it was such a delight to be right there, to share the sweetness and wonder of that first moment, to be paying attention and feel the excitement of this little first right along with this little boy of mine.
(Also notice: Porter's second favorite shirt - "Awesome Dude" and the handle of his just this morning made lightsaber :) I sure love this kiddo. :)
