Juliette giggled for me for the first time tonight. Three times, right after I got feeding her and was making funny faces at her. I swear, it was the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard and it thrilled my whole being. It was pure music to my ears.
We put up a dozen jars of spiced pear butter today. I wish you could smell the house – all the smells of the holidays. And this afternoon we ran out to AppleJack Orchards and bought apples (Sweet Sixteen and Honeycrisp) and some apple bread and caramel apples for an extra treat. And I had a great 5K walk for the American Diabetes Association early this morning, so I’ve had a very full and happy day.
