Jason Gray – Not Right Now

Jason Gray wrote a song that speaks volumes about my experience with the fire last year. This is incredible. If you wonder how to interact with people experiencing grief, listen closely…

He explains the story behind the song on his blog.

He wants to crawl. But the coordination isn’t quite there yet. It’s so much fun to play with him and hear him make all these new noises.

He’s a big fan, apparently

I love that Becca takes such good care of our boy while I’m away at
work. But the baby clothes she puts him in are awfully opinionated. I
think we have uncle Travis to thank for this one. :)

I went for a quick hike in the Blodget Peak open space. Awesome time,
but didn’t see much wildlife other than blue jays. Then as I’m pulling
into my apartment parking lot I see a herd of deer watching a large
hawk that was clutching a freshly killed a squirrel. It’s a rough
neighborhood.

Our little guy is so brave and cute and pathetic. He is spending one
more day in the hospital for this nasty cold. He seems to be bouncing
back to his usual noisy, interactive self. The nurses are completely
suckered in by his face. Just like us.
