We had a great Easter yesterday. Besides the fact that I had a meltdown at church and practically ran from the building...I was (am) missing Ian and through some very spiritual things that were said on this holiday and for the fact that I was asked to give the closing prayer in class...I lost it. But it was good reguardless of my sappy tears!
After church I took Liam outside to take some pictures. I wanted to get his full Easter outfit in view so I was holding onto his hands while my mom took some shots. I didn't want my hand in the pic so I let go thinking she may just get one photo of him before he sat down. He stood standing for almost 30 seconds on his own for the first time! I was so proud of him! He didn't know what was going on so I startled him with my clapping and screaming that he sat down. I tortured him for another 5 minutes or so trying to get more standing pictures. I got plenty! I really wanted Ian to be a "part" of this wonderful day so instead of sending him some stills, I made a picture movie (with music) of the 75 pictures I ended up taking of this fantastic moment. I emailed it to him and waited on the phone while he watched it. He loved it of course, but I could tell he was sad that he missed it. I now truly feel for those (Susan especially) who have to be apart from their spouses...especially those who are serving our country. Here is the video if any of you are interested in watching it.
