Guess who's walking now...

Yep, you got it...Reid!! Big man decided to pass his sister up this weekend. After watching Louisa for the last week or so, Reid decided that he would join in on the walking fun. He stood himself up in the middle of the den and just started walking. For the rest of the night if he was going somewhere, he was walking...not crawling! He looks a little like E.T. when he walks...hands above his head, belly sticking out, quick's quite cute if I do say so myself, and of course I do!! Ahhh...another bittersweet moment in parenthood. Where has the time gone?? I truly can't believe my precious babies are both walking. Louisa is definitely capable of walking more than she is, but for now, she just walks when she wants to...and that's okay with me!

Louisa is proving to be our climber...the picture below is how Craig found her one morning last week. He was in the bedroom and heard her saying, "Uh-oh! Uh-oh!" I think she wasn't sure how to get down!

Here are some other recent favorite pictures:

"If we put our heads together..."

"Kiss, Kiss!"

Reid loves to read!
Sweet girl...loves her babydoll and her bunny slippers!
Momma's babydoll...
Sweet, mischievous boy!

Happy 14 Month Birthday, Babies!!

With all of the new stuff that they are doing, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to call Reid & Louisa babies!! Luckily, I think part of the priviledge of being their mom means that I will always be able to call them my babies :)

I would say the biggest update is that on Wednesday night, our Little Louisa decided that she would walk across the den...completely unprompted and unassisted!! Craig and I were quite surprised and judging by the smile on Louisa's face, she was just as proud as we were! She and Reid have both been taking 5-6 steps on their own for a few weeks. She has taken several more "long walks" but crawling his still her preferred method of getting where she is going.

I still have Christmas pictures to post...hopefully I will get those up this weekend. I love the picture above of Reid & Louisa looking at books in their room. The picture below captures the sweet smiles that Reid & Louisa often exchange when playing together. They get so excited to see the other one and just be close to each absolutely melts their momma's heart! I pray that they will always remain this close!
