He broke is "8 step" record today. Well on camera at least! I'm sure he's broken it several times but I finally got it on camera. I can't believe how big he's getting. Oh and don't mind the mess in the background. That is called "JULIAN!!"

I've always heard stories of babies falling asleep in the high chair while eating but I really couldn't image Julian ever settling down enough to do that. But I was proven wrong tonight. Julian makes recovering from the flu so much more enjoyable :) Even though I am sure i have exposed Jerry and Julian, I have tried to wash my hands a million times today. I'm praying they don't catch this crap.

My mom is on her way tonight!! And Jerry is leaving tonight to drive to Tenn. I'm sooo glad my mom is coming. This was a very inconvienient time to get sick but sooooo blessed to have Jerry who is amazing and then did i mention.. MY MOM IS COMING!!! yay looking forward to a restful weekend.

Hope everyone is great! Take care

8 STEPS!!!

My little baby just sort of started walking today. Last night he took 2 steps towards me.. When I got to the babysitter today she said he took two steps for her today and she thought I had missed it but I was proud to say he did it for me last night. So I wanted to see and he took 4 steps! then a few mins later on the kitchen floor i tried it again and he took 8 steps and i actually think he would have taken more if i could have moved back anymore. I CAN NOT BELIEVE MY BABY IS STARTING TO WALK!!!!

Prayer request:
1. Jerry and his job search
2. Julian being introduced to milk protein again.. pray that his tummy has developed enough to handle milk products!!!

9 months!! Dancing!! Standing!!

Julian was 9 months on Sept. 5th. We had a great Labor Day weeknd. We traveled to Rotan for a family reunion and had a great time with the gang. Jerry and I decided to start out Friday about the time Julian would be getting sleepy. It was a great idea because Julian slept the whole 7 hours there and then a few more when we got there. Not so great for Jerry and I being awake the next day :). We got in around 3 and didn't get hardly any sleep but we managed to have a great time the next day with countless games of volleyball, softball, kickball, basketball, etc... We came back on Sunday afternoon. Julian took a great nap but then he was awake. He doesn't seem to be a fan of his car seat after 4 hours awake in it. To make a long story short we got 15 mins from home with a sleepy sleepy baby that was TIRED of being in his car seat and we ended up having a car seat, back seat, a baby, and a mommy covered in PUKE!! fun times!! Car seat, back seat, baby,and mommy are clean now and all is well. :)

Julian had his 9 month appointment on Tuesday morning. He weighed in at 22 lbs 9 oz, he is 31 inches long, and his head is still in the 95th percentile. So we are so thankful to have such a healthy happy baby boy. Here are a couple videos I took one day this week after school. He is such a hoot to hang out with. I love being this little guy's mommy.

Video 1: Just a little bit of Julian and Odis playing together. Notice he stands alone now. They didn't know I was in the kitchen with the camera. Of course Odis thought he was alone so the video ends with Odis steeling some of Julian's treats off the table.

Video 2: Julian is a big dancer these days. It started with a singing toy but now he'll dance to anything- even his mommy being silly. I can not seem to get a video of him really "gettin it" but this is just a sneek peek of his dancing. :)
