Joyful Progress in Pictures

True progress quietly and persistently moves along without notice.

Without struggle, there can be no progress.

We attended D's little girls 3rd Birthday Party on Saturday. (Happy Birthday A!!!) Now usually Boy Wonder just hangs by the chips and wanders about not really interacting with the other kids but then this happened spontaneously and unprompted. Ready????

Spontaneous unprompted appropriate play with other kids. He looked at them and laughed along. Thanks for the wake up call Boy Wonder. Mommy's watching.
