thing number one of a million, at least.

today, maggie and i walked out to get the mail. it was our first trip outside when she was not already in her car seat. it was our first "walk."

it was bright, which she didn't love, but i narrated as we went.  and as we were getting back to our door, mail in hand, the wind blew and she felt it for the first time. i could see the look on her face, trying to figure out what that new and lovely sensation was, and i told her it was the wind.

and it struck me that i just introduced her to something she didn't know.

and i cried, just a little, at the magnitude of it all.

my baby just felt the wind for the first time. and i got to be a part of it.
