2/16/11 Milestones

When a baby is born, a parent's life transforms drastically from total independence into total tound-the-clock care of another person.

But ever so gradually across a childhood, total helplessness yields to tiny freedoms. Some are larger than others (you can sit up without toppling over), but all are joyful transitions for a parent. Tonight I witnessed one of these miniature milestones when Gabriel trimmed his own fingernails!
