Choked Up Over Grilled Cheese

I actually got all choked-up and teary yesterday over a grilled cheese sandwich. I know that seems weird, but it was Thane who was eating it . . . his very first grilled cheese sandwich that he has actually eaten any of, and some of it on his own.

I wonder if he thinks his family is totally off the wall when we celebrate things like that? We all were so proud of him, especially when he asked for another bite. And he ate more than half, probably close to three-quarters.

He does have a new trick up his sleeve for when he is asked to eat new foods, though. He pushes his belly out to make it look bloated, and then announces that he can't eat it because it will make him sick.

Ah... grilled cheese, a wonderful simple happiness of life. I'm glad that Thane has joined those of the world who know that joy.
You deserve to have teary eyes, how nice to see him expanding his horizons :)
