Today's little moments of happiness:

- Dinner with family.
- After dinner, Davis was crawling around and pulled himself up onto a bar stool sitting in Susan and Brian's kitchen. He pushed it around a bit and then took both hands off and stood by himself for about a second. He got this look on his face of "Holy cow! Look what I've done!" and was so happy...until he came crashing down on his behind. Just the look of pure joy and "Look what I did!" was amazing.
- Gracelyn told us Sunday that she learned in Sunday School that Jesus lives in her heart. Tonight, she was looking for her book about Jesus. Susan asked her, "Where does Jesus live" and she said, "In my book!" and then said, "And my heart."
- I took Gracelyn a bottle of bubbles in the shape of an ice cream cone. We had a good time sitting on her porch, blowing bubbles. However, the bubble blowing device (for which I'm sure there is an accurate, scientific name but I'm too lazy to look it up) was longer than usual, so she ended up getting a lot of bubble liquid on her. Just to see her joy at doing this and having fun trying to catch the bubbles was great fun. Of course, this fun quickly diminished when for no reason she decided to see what bubbles taste like. I was sitting there and she dipped her bubble blowing device into the liquid, put it up to her mouth and then into it before I knew what was happening. Luckily, we found some juice to wash the bubble taste out of her mouth.
