ONE down, THREE to go!!!

We knew it wouldn't be long after the crawling, pulling self up to stand, climbing, and all of the other crazy daring stuff she does, but WALKING??? Yep, you read it right, Addison is walking. Tuesday morning my friend Kizzie was here to visit and I was doing the dishes. I hear "Colin look", I turn around and there she goes. Addie walked from the couch to Colin which was about 7 steps. She then continued to take 4 here 6 there and so on and so on..... Her balance keeps getting better by the day. Lord please help me, things are about to get CRAZY around this place!!

Cards or Cubs????

CARDS!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry Jenna Walker:)
This past Friday night 11 of us went to the Cards/Cubs game. It was a great time, and of course they won!! Colin had a blast, it was his first Cardinal game. He tried last season but the game was rained out. Colin had to take care of Peter the Penguin all weekend for school. We had to take him everywhere we went and take pictures for Peter's journal. Here are a few shots from the night.

I have just read Kayleigh's blog and unfortunately something has happened that no one can explain. She has undergone surgery and they thought she was recovering normally until they found she will not wake up. They ran some test and they are saying that part of her brain has no activity. Please read her post to get all of the details as I know nothing about her condition and I don't want to mislead you. She needs all of the prayers and support from everyone right now so she can survive yet another setback. We have all grown to love this 1 pound miracle from God, pray that her journey does not end now. Grab her button for your page if you don't already have it. PRAY PRAY PRAY!!!!!!

I was enjoying a night of trivia on Saturday with my parents, their friends, my sister, and her future husband when I get a text from Casey. It says "Check your email". I thought, oh he took a sweet picture of the kids before they went to bed and I couldn't wait to see it. It was then that I open this email with the subject line being, OH NO. This is what I discovered.

Now this may be a bit fuzzy as it is from a cell phone, but if you look really close, SHE'S CLIMBING!!!! God help me now. She is not even 11 months old and she is CRAZY!! The crying was because she figured out how to get up, but then couldn't get back down. I couldn't help but laugh. HA HA!!

Choo Choo!

Okay, so this is just a quick post to let you all know why I have been totally slacking lately. Colin decided that one afternoon while playing Toontown on my computer that he was going to take a nose dive into my computer and totally busted the screen:(. I have been briefly checking mail and bank accounts on Casey's computer but it is doing no justice. I can't access my pictures or even sync up my phone. I never really knew how much I depended on this thing until now. I bawled like a big baby for like an hour after it happened because I just don't know how to function without it, sad I know. Anyway, I now have over 300 pictures on my memory card just waiting to transfer them to a computer, so if you know any way to get a cheap one somewhere, please let me know. I did manage to upload a couple of pictures to Casey's computer from our first walk with the Choo Choo wagon, I LOVE this thing!!!!
