breaking news =)

Elijah turned 1 today! Happy birthday little guy!

Yesterday, he learned to walk "for real". Greg brought the boys home from the childcare at church (Wednesday night is homegroup at our house, and childcare is across the street at the church), and set Elijah down by the couch. Elijah turned to me and took one step, then lunged at me. I wondered if he would walk in between us, because he was in a brave mood. So Greg and I set ourselves up on an open area of the floor, and with a little encouragement, Elijah started walking back and forth between us! He got so excited about it that he kept this up for 45 minutes!! This morning he's walked again a little, so he remembers what he did last night. Here's the videos!

I was thinking of calling and saying happy birthday, but I guess Elijah wouldn't apreciate the jesture. So, tell him for me. Happy Birthday little dude!

Happy birthday kid! That video was really one of the cutest things I've ever seen. It was so sweet how Andrew caught him. Does he still tackle him all the time? Or is he nicer now?

Love you guys!
