As for the surprise... Maya has rolled over, completely unassisted, from back to front! When I got home from the gym, Peter shared this exciting news. I am so sad that I missed it!! But, at the same time, because I get so many moments with them, I am glad that it was something saved special for Daddy. I cant believe it! She rolled over! By herself! And Peter said that you could see her thinking about it and purposely doing it.
Yesterday, Bobby and I were looking at different pictures in the house and we came across the calendar (because it is from our church, it has pretty religious art pictures on it, and he was mesmerized by the "Wedding of Cana" portrait). Standing at the calendar, I began to read off the things on it. And, when I got to today, I gave him a primer about Martin Luther King, Jr. From the south myself, MLKjr has been one of my heroes since I learned his "I Have a Dream" speech in the 5th grade. And so, in his memory and honor today, I will leave you with his dream. It's mine, too.
