Proud Mommy


Words cannot express how proud I am of you this evening! You have begun walking. For months, you have held onto hands, then fingers, then 1-5 steps here and there. Now you are letting go of objects and walking. Of course, you have to been walking toward something (M or D, vacuum, futon, table, etc) but it is amazing to see you face light up. We set you up and you used to take a few steps. Now it seems like you want to run! I keep telling you to stand firmly before you start walking but you are just too excited. Practice makes perfect and we can see that you are beginning to learn that. We took some great videos tonight. You got so excited at times, you would close your eyes and make your cheesy face when you were walking. I think 7 steps is your maximum but that is only because the object of your affection was only that far away. Let's see if you wake up and remember all that you accomplished today!

Here are the videos we took when D got home. I took 4 before he even got there!

You have also kicked up your vocabulary. I mentioned in the last letter two words that I picked out of all the rambling you do. Well today, you sounded like you were one of the men guarding the wicked witch's castle. "Oh we oh we" in your high pitched toddler voice (it actually sounds different). There are times when I think I have had it with you (diaper changes to be exact) but when I hear your sweet babbling, I can't help but smile. Don't fret, I got audio and video so you can hear it for yourself :)

Love you Booger Bean,

Aren't you impressed? Anyway, Daddy and I agree to raise you eating a healthy, organic, and all-natural diet. No real problems yet, except for you parents. We eat like crap! We are slowly transitioning to a better lifestyle so you can have a good example. On that note, yesterday, we took you to McDonalds for lunch today. Of course you don't eat it but I knew you would enjoy the play place and M & D had to eat (ok we craved double cheeseburgers). I sat you near the foot of the entrance of the plastic tunnels and you crawled up and in and Daddy had to chase you to get out 30 minutes later. You made friends with a 3 year old (I know, she wasn't 4!) and you grabbed onto a five year olds sweater and made him yell for his mom! 

You have been leaning your head side to side. It is so cute! Hopefully I'll get a picture of that soon.

Love you,
