Thankful for today

Today, when our morning rest time was over, Isaac sat up in his bed, smiled at me, and exclaimed, "Hewo, Mommy!"

Today, as I was getting lunch ready, Isaac picked up a plate from the counter, pointed at the picture on it, and asked me, "Weez dat?" I told him it was Winnie the Pooh, and he proceeded ask what was on each of the other plates.

Today, as we were finishing lunch, Isaac looked at me and said, "Miss Stephie!" (his speech therapist). I replied, "Yes, you're going to see her at school today. And you'll see Miss Jen and ... who else are you going to see at school?" Isaac beamed and (correctly) answered, "Miss Kawen!"

Today, as I buckled in the kids for the ride to school, Isaac looked at the temporarily vacant space next to our van and asked, "Where za car?"

All things that the parents of most 3-year-olds take for granted. All things that made today a very good day ... because Isaac said them.

Today we are thankful for answered prayers!

Our 15 seconds

In case you haven't heard, we're a little bit famous right now. Our adventure as (very minor) celebrities started on Wednesday night, when one of my friends discovered that the Huffington Post was featuring one of our videos. I was absolutely floored! The next morning, I was astounded again when another friend informed me that our video was hanging out on AOL's homepage:

I thought that would be the end of the story, but yesterday my aunt noticed that another YouTube user has uploaded our video as his own (probably to increase traffic to his channel). And today I woke up to find that our original video is closing in on 1 million views:

Can you believe it? All because of a little video that I took to remember the first time that Tío Ner played his guitar for the Fab Four—crazy!
