J Summary (4Y2M2D) - Growing up...

We were on a wonderful vacation to southern France with our extended family - grandma, grandpa, aunties, uncles and cousins from the Danish side. There were 2 tables. J surprised us today when he decided to sit at a dining table away from us this evening. That repeated the next evening.

At 4 years old now, he doesn't need us to sit by him, hold his hand or receive a hug anymore. To be honest, it hurt. But it is a milestone of growing up that he would rather be with others other than mom and dad, and that is normal. And we are both happy that he is growing more brave and bold, and no longer the shy little boy as before.

I am reminded that our children is a loan from God. We don't own them. I want to treasure every minute of J's childhood as much as I can, while he is still a little boy, before he grows up and moves away from us...
