Another blog post.

Its amazing what having a young child will do for your life, everything that had once been dull and dingy takes on a shiny new feel. Having a rabbit visit your backyard to munch on the grass becomes an adventure in exploration. Finding out that a bird has started to build a nest on the perigo that you built three years ago in the yard turns into a two hour odyssey with your toddler who becomes fascinated with the birds walking on a fence and stares off into the sky and tries to launch himself into the air after the birds. Fruit on trees gets picked and tasted, whether ripe or not, flowers get picked also and breathlesly brought in to 'Mama' for her approval. The sky is filled with wonders, airplanes flying mysteriously across the sky, birds darting around, even the moon smiling down from above. Bugs are to be chased and giggled over, rocks are magical items to be picked up and handled. The littlest thing can turn into a big event bringing smiles and laughs to all. Blowing bubbles in the lawn eats away all of the evening while childhood cartoons are a family event again. I can't wait until Disneyland becomes the Magical Kingdom again and goes from just a place to vacation at to a land filled with fun and adventures.

Makes you wonder if those adults that become curmudgeons missed out on the joy those kind of moments bring. Maybe an injection of glee every 10 years would cure it.

Sounds to me like you and Jacob are discovering the world together. Also sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy it, relish it and remember what these moments feel like. I think if more of us did that, we might be able to hold on to the joy a little bit longer and appreciate it all a little bit more.
