Amen, Brotha!

I'm so behind on blog posts, trying to catch up on our fabulous vacation and all the fun things that have happened since we've gotten home, that I've been drafting in a notebook everytime I find a minute. One page turned into two and two turned into three...

But as I work my way up to hitting the "Publish Post" button, I simply had to share a sweet moment that happened at dinner tonight. Charlie, my little guy who does a lot of grunting (and not a lot of talking), folded his hands during grace and said Amen. I looked at Rob like, "Did you hear that?" Seriously, the kid doesn't even say hi. Or bye. Or bird. Or ball. He tries, but it pretty much all comes out "Uuh." But as though to prove to me that he really did say it, he chirped out the most perfectly enunciated Amen a second time as he refolded his little sweet potato and ketchup covered hands.

This is my favorite post yet! Sounds like Charlie is going to be a good listener and talk when it's really important. I wish I did that more often ;)

I feel you with the blog posts. I still have to write about our fabulous weekend cohosting the Memorial Day party. I've posted on easy quick stuff, but I feel like I have so much to write about when you came to visit that I get overwhelmed... I also have so many pics that it's ridiculous!

I love this, how special! Like Erica said, he'll choose his words carefully in life and make them all have great meaning. How fun to be able to tell this story when he's older.
