Well, yesterday Blake decided he'd give walking a try! It was a little sudden and really fun to see his face. He's been walking on anything that will stand still, and some that doesn't, for a while now. Yesterday Daddy got home early and we all got to play together. Shane stood Blake up and he walked over to me!!! He will be 10 month next week, so its time, but he was just so at ease with it, it was funny! We had a great visit from my in-laws last week, they helped us replace almost ALL the carpet in our house!!!!!!!!!! It looks soooo good now, and no more old basement smell. One of the pictures is Blake trying to 'tuck' the carpet. He was watching everyone else do it and so he thought he should too!! That day was long, but so great to have so much family here to help. The weather has been so sporadic, I just can't wait til I can start getting the garden area ready and start planting. I have so many plans for this summer!! Its March, so I know there's not too much time until I can start sporting shorts again!!!!!! Things are progressively getting better, and I'm hopeful for all the things to come!
