And at 14 Months, we walk!!!

video

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.

I've been in a SLUMP!

I've been in a major SLUMP when it comes to.... well EVERYTHING!!! I haven't been blogging, reading, eating healthy, and pushing myself to workout just a little bit harder. I'm not even sure why I have been in this SLUMP?? Maybe I just needed a break from it all. And now that my son is on the move (no, not walking yet but close) I guess I've been spending every moment I have chasing him around the house, playing with him, and loving him up! And then I'm tired and I just want to get my shower, turn on the boob-tube and watch some t.v.!
During my bloggy break we took out first trip to the zoo and swung on the swings at the park for the first time. Our baby is now saying baby which sounds like BAY-BAY, out, up, and bye. And he's still cuter than ever!!!! I couldn't tell you how many times a night my husband and I look at each other and say "he's just so beautiful."

Here are some pictures of the zoo:
And then there's the swing.... he would have swung forever!!!And how could I forget the tunnel?
