Cool Surprises...

Ok... so after my deep and emotional blog last night I decided that I needed something happy one here. JT suprised us and really started to walk. He has been taking steps for the past month and a half, but he has a mind of his own and if he doesn't feel like walking... he won't. He also would curl his toes under his feet so he couldn't have enough balance or something. (At least that is what Jon said the problem was.) I think he is just a stubborn kid. :) Anyway... he is still pretty shaky, but is getting better. He has also been able to stand up in the middle of the floor for the past month. So after he falls... he just stands up and tries again. He is walking in circles and turning which really surprised me. It was like a light finally went on in his little head. He is so excited while he walks. He just laughs like he is so proud of himself. He is pretty much done crawling unless he needs something fast. I am putting some video of today with his walking. Sorry it is sideways. I didn't really think of how it would come out on the computer. I am so used to being able to flip my pictures. If anyone knows a secret to flipping video... I would love to know. :)



The other surprise... So those of you who know me real well, know that I "HATE" cooking. I really wished I liked to cook, but I don't. The past few days I have tried to psych myself up to do something. My parents have an apricot tree that is ready to pick so Megan and I got a couple of bags and climbed the ladders last night. (During Bachelorette commercials) :) Now I know you are all in shock. Believe me Jon was and me too a little bit. He said he never thought I would do this and he was just waiting to see if I really would. But here you go. You can all pick up your chins off the floor now. It is true. I actually got my dehydrator out. (Thanks Grandma) Here is a picture to prove that I did it. We can't wait to have dried apricots and a few bananas just to see how they turn out. Next on the agenda... apples, kiwis, watermelon, and I guess whatever else sounds good.

Aren't the first few steps precious?

I hate cooking too. I think it's because of the way almost everything I cook turns out. Yucky or burned or both. Good job!
