Throw Back Thursday

My son is going to be a year old next Wednesday, which freaks me out because time is going far too quickly.  Today he took his first steps without holding on to anything...three steps from the coffee table to his little rocking chair.  I almost lost my cool and whipped out the ugly cry, but I managed to contain myself.

After these first few steps, I took Elijah out to get his first pair of shoes.  He was in complete awe later on when I put them on his feet.  He actually cried when we tried to take them off.'s throwback is Elijah when he first discovered his arms moved back and forth.

I need to remember how awesome the simple things in life are (like our ability to WALK) the next time my hiney is parked on the couch enjoying ice cream when I should be outside WALKING.
