Celebrating Our Successes

Every week I try to post the small successes I've had around the house. Sometimes I really have to search my recolection to come up with those successes, but this week several come to mind pretty quickly.

1. We've made arrangements with our realtor and movers to get estimates for moving our belongings from NC to IL. We're grateful to get our stuff closer to us - now we just need to talk to the storage facility about getting a bigger unit....

2. I've been to the gym twice this week. Twice! One of the times I even dropped John off in the nursery. He did great! When I came back from yoga he was the only child left in the room and was sitting on the lap of the caretaker eating a snack and drinking from his sippy. I'm not sure he even missed me... :(

3. I finally put together a friends birthday gift. He was leaving for his birthday trip to Vegas yesterday. We missed the party due to travel schedules and whatnot - but I really wanted to get his gift to him before he left on his trip. Got it to him right before he left for the airport!

Hip Hip Hooray!

As promised...

And yes, before the questions come...that is a sock in his mouth.

We like to think it's like Dumbo's feather...only in sock form....

We're Walking!

Well, it's official. We've taken off! Not down the hallway quite yet, but John is definitely toddling from chair to couch, couch to table, table to toys. He's taking more and more steps every day and we're having to watch him like a hawk. We'll have video of our walking adventures up shortly - just as soon as we get some footage. But for now, we nap....
