4th of July and Hands & Knees

We contemplated going somewhere this evening for festivities.  Had an invite to celebrate with church friends, and the local megachurch puts on a HUGE fireworks program for the community.  But Buddy refused to nap all afternoon, so I didn't want him to be cranky around people, and the megachurch celebration is out because I have to use the bathroom all of the time and Ihave never used a port-a-potty, and I don't intend to start now.  (I have however used squatty-potties, believe it or not!)  Anyhoo - so we are spending the evening at home, listening to what sounds like gun-shots from our neighbors, but in actuality are the fireworks they have been setting off all week, and which we know (from previous years) that they will continue to set off for the remainder of the summer at random times.

Due to Buddy's lack of nap and lots of playing this afternoon, he conked out around 6:30 and is now snoring in his crib.  I guess we made the right choice staying home.

Yesterday I wrote about some firsts.  Today we had another.  Buddy boy is getting HIMSELF into hands and knees position (without our assistance or even prompting) and even starting to rock in this position.  This is a BIG deal because he now has the strength/ability to get his belly off of the floor and hold himself out.  Crawling is just around the corner!  The therapy/practicing is helping, and that is so encouraging.

Look how far we have come since last year on the 4th:

Thank you, Jesus!
