Baby Steps

YAY!! Baby girl took a step here and there this weekend, but today she took 4 steps!!! YAY!! I am so excited. Yes it will be harder chasing her around the house and stuff when she starts walking-but going to the park will be so much easier when she is walking. I won't have to carry her for the most part. She is my baby, and probably my last so it is hard to see her grow so fast but I am loving every minute of it.

I love watching her and her big brother interact. Today we went to the grocery store and got one of those buggies with the little car in the front. So I let her ride in it with him. That lasted for all of 5 minutes until he started irritating her. So I put her up front and he soon wanted up front too-this particular buggy is big enough for two kids to sit up front!! So I got them both in there and he held a bottle for her-so cute!! Then tonight while I was feeding the kids, he would take a bite of his applesauce and then give her a bit-so sweet!!! After dinner we went upstairs for a few minutes of playtime and he had her cackling so loud!! Again, so sweet!!! He just adores her and her him. I hope and pray they continue this love for each other into adulthood. I want them to be close and depend on each other, be there for each other and support each other throughout life. I hope they will be able to duplicate that same bond I have with my family.

Awww, how sweet. My 20yo daughter and 18yo son are still very close. So it DOES happen. :-) We were military when they were young, so we moved a lot and we homeschooled. So they were always each other's main constant in life. It really means a lot to me to see them remain good buddies. Hope you see that with your kiddos, too!
