Life will never be the same

Today, it finally clicked and Isaiah has officially become a toddler!

He has been working on his walking skills for a month or so now, taking a few steps from the coffee table to the couch. Today, in a matter of minutes, it all came together, and off he went. Literally, in between 4:00 and 7:30, he went from taking 5 or 6 steps back and forth from David to me to walking on his own from room to room. It was so crazy to see! He gets so excited. We got some great video last night that we will post soon.

I tried to get a good picture of him standing in front of the Christmas tree, but it was not very successful a) because he kept wanting to walk to me b) because it was night and my flash was stinking c) it was past his bedtime and he was a little out of it and just wanted to play with the camera. Here is what I've got for you:

I am more sad than I expected to be. Don't get me wrong, I am very excited and I love seeing him waddle around. Yet, at the same time, I feel like this is one of the first big steps in his independence and I feel like it was just yesterday that he was swaddled and lying in my arms. I hear from many moms that this is how most milestones in kids development are- exciting and fun, but at the same time a little bittersweet because your baby is growing up.

I have a feeling he will be running tomorrow. Watch out world!

And, yes, I know he needs a haircut :)  He was called a girl 3 times this week by strangers. It was nice.

And, since I am posting, I thought I would throw in a few more from the weekend:
Drumming with his daddy after church:

Dad cuddle time:
Two of my closest friends from Orange County came down to celebrate my birthday yesterday and it was such a sweet time. Lunch, drinks, watching a movie while Julianne highlighted my hair- I was definitely spoiled for a few hours. Love you girls!
