When most people think about babies and their "firsts", they think about the first smile, the first tooth, the first time they roll over, crawl, walk, and talk. Well, tonight I was making Casey some popcorn while holding Colton. I have in my lifetime made a bazillion bags of popcorn. But, as I was making it and talking to Casey, I noticed that Colton had started laughing hysterically. I thought he might be laughing at Casey, but when I looked at him, he was staring at the microwave watching the popcorn pop. At that moment, I thought, "This is the first time he has ever seen a bag of popcorn pop and he thinks it is the funniest thing ever." Call me crazy, but that little moment in his life touched me. Who finds that much joy in seeing a bag of popcorn pop? I just find it awesome that I get to go through this journey of not only the common "firsts" with him, but also the ones you never think about.
