He'll bravely take 3 or 4 steps before tumbling to his knees. I am so excited to see my little guy reach this milestone! And yes - I'm also terrified because I know this means he'll soon be off and running!
It's also a moment to step back and watch him fill the role of pseudo-big brother since Brianne is not yet to the walking phase. She will get there when she's ready- and I'm sure Bryce will be a good motivator as she watches him cruising around. In the meantime - sister is mastering her own method of getting around. She's got the Mowgli Bear Cub Walk down - and you can't help but smile when you see it!
Brianne has another trick....it's one of those things where you don't want to encourage the activity - but you certainly need to get a picture before you try to tell your child not to do it anymore..... :) Presenting my little contortionist - who thinks a shelf on the entertainment center is her personal play space......

Hawaiian Falls, a local water park, sponsored 'Champions Day' - an amazing day where individuals with Special Needs got in FREE, and their family members only had to pay $5....so of course we had to go check it out. We all loved floating around the lazy river. The wave pool was also a favorite - the kids smiled and giggled as the waves crashed while sitting at the waters edge. I had thought Mark was a little crazy for bringing the pack-and-play.....CRAZY SMART is what i concluded. The kids had a great time wrestling and giggling in that - and it gave us a way to have our hands free for a minute. A HUGE THANK YOU to Hawaiian Falls for this great day!
|Did I mention there was giggling and wrestling in the pack-and-play?|
|The result of a day at the water park = serious naps!|
|Best Friends - and more wrestling :)|
|Love this girl! Brushing her teeth is exciting now that she has a mouthful of teeth! :)|
|We caved - we have a Keurig....LOVE it!|
|Pugs enjoyed a day at the Doggy Spa|
My girl's laughter - one of the sweetest sounds ever!
What are you doing to beat the heat and enjoy the summer??
