Yesterday, after I picked up Malachi from my mom's house, we got home and he was playing while I made my lunch. I was watching him walk, then fall down and then stand back up again...wait a minute...stand back up again?!? He didn't even crawl over to something to pull up like he normally did. I wanted to make sure that I really saw what I thought I had seen, so Samuel laid him back down on his back and sure enough, he rolled over to his tummy, assumed the "downward dog" position, and just stood up. I called my mom to see if he had done it at her house and she said that he hadn't. He doesn't do it every time, but he's actually doing it. One more step toward giving up crawling!! It is just so incredible how many new things kids learn at this age. Every time you turn around, they are doing something new and exciting. What a big boy!!!
Welcome to our little cyber-spot! Our sweet family has been split in two...four of us walk together here on earth, while 3 of our sweet babies are snuggling with our Savior. Natalie was born on March 14 and met Jesus on March 16, 2006. Her little brother, Malachi, joined us in May 2007. Our second daughter, Sapphira arrived in April 2009. Our precious 4th child, whom we named Asher, met Jesus in Febuary 2011. Our 5th sweet baby, Azra, joined her siblings in Heaven in August 2011. Baby Amira is due to arrive in March 2013. A very patient dog and a cat round out our crew. Thanks for spending time with us!
