Baby Steps

In Josh news, we have been walking him back and forth between Jason & I. He can basically walk across our living room with no problems just as long as he is walking towards someone he loves. He is so cute. Sometimes on his way to dad he will fall down and he will crawl back to me start again...redo. Sometimes he also gets distracted by the sippy cup on the couch or the cookie on the floor that he looses site of his goal mom/dad and he veers off course to the object (which we encourage of course just as long as after his break, he continues practicing). So he can walk end of story...but if you try to walk with him and wiggle your finger out of his strong grip, then he plops down and gets mad at you. He just likes to hold hands.

In other Josh news, he is practicing to be an Olympic diver. I gave him a 8.3 on his last dive into the bath tub. He scored high because he did it with a smile and a little laughter, but there were some deductions because he missed the rubber ducky and he was still wearing his shirt and diaper...he got away from me while I was getting him ready to hop in the bath.

News on the home front. We have successfully completed one week of seminary or should I say Jason has. I'm still struggling with waking up early, but that has been a life long struggle. I cooked pancakes for everyone this morning. That was fun. I also got a call from work. They want me to do payroll again...I could work from home. There are pros & cons floating around in my head, but I think I'm going to do I crazy? I enjoy the association with people at work, I enjoy keeping up on my skills, and the extra money would be fun money...fence, TV, computer, new car fund, food storage...ok they are all fun. This would be the only time I could do it...once child 2 comes along, I wouldn't have time. I know it sounds a little selfish but I do miss working.

I'm so glad Josh is walking! Lillie is in the same boat as Josh. She can walk, but she just wants to hold your hand...but hers is because she's just too chicken to let go!

And it's definitely not selfish to still want to work. Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you have to stay at home and be tied to Josh 24/7. Go for it! A new car, new tv, new fence sounds like good incentives to me!

Congrats on surviving seminary! I warn you, teacher started surprising us with breakfast on Fridays and then we came to expect it. Sometimes Fridays were the only days the less-active kids came because they knew there'd be donuts.
