This sparkler represents one big step for Hope. Hope hates fireworks. All fireworks. Even the snakes that are just black foamy things that make no noise. John was determined to break her this week. He lit sparklers every night as she watched (and cried) from the window. On Friday he lit sparkler after sparkler, until she finally held one herself!!! I think she probably did at least 10 sparklers that night. The best part was hearing her just squeal with excitement. Good times!
Noah was 10 weeks old this week. Question, when do you stop counting in weeks? And why does 2 months sound older than 10 weeks? I am just trying to hold on to the little baby stage for as long as I possibly can. But, if I ever say "Noah is 93 weeks old today," please promise me that you will tell me it's time to stop!
