And at 14 Months, we walk!!!

This video is from yesterday! I had my neighbor's daughter play with our little man's toys to get him to walk!!! Look at him go! And today when he was at Grandma Pat's and Papa Ed's house, he walked up a storm. Go baby Go!

I am so excited!!!! I have been waiting for what seems like forever for the walking stage. And don't worry you won't have to warn me and say," you'll wish he was crawling when he starts to walk", because believe me... I've been warned... and I am ready!!! Bring on the walking!!!

Other than trying to get our son to walk this summer, we've just been hanging out together. I took the first two weeks off of work to get things (clutter) cleaned out of my house and had a garage sale. The garage sale was not as successful as I would have liked it to be, but some money is better then no money for things that I donated to the Good Will anyway. I also took our son to the zoo, the park, the sprinkler park ( which is like the secret stay at home mom sprinkler park that I think only stay at home moms knew about... but I'm in on their secret now!!!), bought him a swing for our backyard, and we started swim lessons. Let me just tell you that our son absolutely loves his swim lessons. He grinned so hard during the first lesson that he didn't even move his arms and legs. The second session we still had a major grin from ear to ear but we remember to move our arms and legs!!! We are looking forward to the rest of the summer together. It's already flying by.

As for the no ice cream and more water drnking. Enjoy life.. it is summer. Eat SOME ice cream and play in the water with your son. Ok OK have an exta glass of water too.

Yay! He is walking so good! I know what you mean about all the warnings "You wish they were crawling again". But so far I haven't wished that at all! I love that Landon can walk. I thought we'd never get there & I was getting quite worried. They are so dang cute when they walk. It makes them seem all grown up. I am jealous that you get the summer with your little guy. I am glad you are enjoying every second!
