Which leads me to my next thought, I'd like to wish Reed a very, very Happy Belated Birthday (31, but who's counting). I'm not good at expressing myself, but I feel so blessed to have married such a wonderful man. We have been through so many events, both good and hard, and Reed is always so strong and "definantly" makes life more enjoyable. So, to a amazing father, husband and friend, I hope you have another exciting and enjoyable year.

Joie de vivre is a term used to express a cheerful enjoyment of life. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, "can be a joy of conversation, joy of eating, joy of anything one might do… And joie de vivre may be seen as a joy of everything, a comprehensive joy, a philosophy of life, a Weltanschauung. Robert's Dictionnaire says joie is sentiment exaltant ressenti par toute la conscience, that is, involves one's whole being." (Thank you Wikipedia :)
Happy Birthday Baby Gray, we love you.

Gray is officially walking. In fact, after Sacrement today he just took off down the aisle and followed Matts to nursery.
Gray has been sick for over a week. He has some kind of nasty virus with blisters on his throat that involves alot of crying and not alot of sleeping. I don't think I've slept more than 2 hours at a time since Monday. Poor kid, I think it's even harder because we're so spoiled by his pleasant personality.

So how did this happen?
Well, Walker's house is right on the Savannah river and we took his boat out for an evening ride. Not only did he let Matts sit in the drivers seat...
he let him drive most of the way. He loved how pushing forward made us all jolt and go faster and pulling back jarred us to a stop. He was incredibly pleased with his new found power and surprisingly, he steered us pretty straight - even when Walker let him go under the bridge (asking for trouble from our little crunching obsessed boy).
