Ansel is Walking

About two weeks ago Ansel stood up on his own for a long time. We were at Bible study and it happened in our friends' kitchen. We couldn't believe it. Ansel took his first steps two days later! Now he walks about 7 steps and then crawls, stands up and walks again. At this rate, it won't be long before he is running!

Good luck! Eliza had more bumps and bruises than I can count these days. She is fearless! It is pretty fun to watch them, tiring too. Now you see them now you don't!

Thanks, Ali. Those bumps and bruises have already started! It is definitely fun, though.

Yesterday I let him out of my sight for just a couple of minutes. He was in his room where every wipe had been pulled from the dispenser, all the clothes had been removed from the dresser & baskets, everything (clothing, toys, whatever he could find) seemed to be piled high in the middle of the floor. He was so excited about it. He almost seemed proud of what he had done. I had a good laugh and picked it all up, but for a moment I was asking God, "is this really my life?" Truly, what a blessing it is to have a healthy, happy boy!
