Over the counter

Bright is officially tall enough to wash his hands without a step stool. I have been prepared for most of the milestones along the way, but this one took me completely off guard. No step-stool? What? But you were just born yesterday, weren't you? Oh, how it seems like it. But alas, we are planning his fourth birthday party next week, and we are simultaneously retiring the booster seat and moving him to the top bunk (to make room for Zion, to make room for baby).

I am proud of you, son. It pains me some, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I'll write in more detail about you, and how proud we are of you, on your birthday. xoxoxo
