February 11, 2007

Yesterday evening, my husband and I were both in the living room, playing with the boys.  I was sitting on the couch and Ben was standing next to me, holding on. All of a sudden, he put both of his hands above his head and took off walking across the living room, with a huge grin on his face. My husband and I were both surprised because it was really the first time that he attempted to walk more than 2 or 3 steps without help. He can now take 7 or 8 steps on his own, although he normally ends up picking up speed along the way, which causes him to fall. It is very funny to watch him though because he always puts both arms straight up.

They love to be with us. If I am doing something in the kitchen, they will normally drag toys into the kitchen to be near me. So I normally try to put kitchen work on hold until they are napping and I spend my time with them when they are awake.

Being a parent is a wonderful blessing. Being a mom is a beautiful thing. I really do love it and I love them so much more every day. Time to go get them up from nap.

Simple pleasures are certainly best. Play is child's work--so never feel time spent playing is wasted. Treasure it up!

I've been so busy. I missed so many of your posts.
I'm so glad to hear that B is starting to walk. He sounds adorable. I hope you're able to get a picture of that. And the Dancer stories are so cute. Dancer seems to be very protective. Sweet.
I do hope you are able to keep blogging for awhile but understand the need to be with your boys.
