I usually like to celebrate fall the very minute it arrives, even counting down the hours we have left until we’re in the most glorious season of all. This year, however, was a little different.
Fall came in the middle of the night and I had just started celebrating not being awake with Jackson around that same time. But on the first day of fall, Jackson gave me a new reason to celebrate – he smiled at me for the first time!
He gave me the smile while I was making a poop joke, so I can imagine this boys sense of humor hasn’t fallen far from the tree :)
Every little milestone is so exciting and the fact that he reached this one on the first day of my favorite season makes me realize anew how much God loves us and cares about what we care about.
Now I can’t wait to hear him laugh!
Speaking of smiling, if you’re taking family pictures this fall or if your kids need a wardrobe refresh, check out my segment from the week where I talk about some really cute GAP Kids clothes and the new line that lets them be the designers!
