Last week we were relaxing in the grass when suddenly Wes shot straight up and stood unassisted for the first time. Like his first crawl, this was a big deal! I just die every time he does it with his wobbly chicken legs and proud smile. I've been thinking since what an incredible thing it's been to watch my baby go from a helpless, dependent little person to learning all of these new skills and becoming independent, right in front of me. Sometimes it's hard to believe that Darren and I created him (with the help of God, of course!) and have given him life. I seriously cherish watching him blossom into a little boy. Also, his obsession with putting things in his mouth… never gets old.
