Standing on his own two feet!

After a brief hiatus with the push toy after a hard fall, Cooper is now on board with loving it again and pushing it everywhere. He also figured out how to do this (see video below) today! Wow! He made great strides today toward his first steps and we are SO excited!

Six Years!?

Sean, where has time gone. These six years have flown by but have been a wonderful adventure (as our pictures prove!). It has been an honor to live life by your side. I love you more today than when I said "I do" and I can't wait to see what is yet to come. Happy Anniversary, Babe!

Last weekend was an awesome weekend. Busy - but awesome, nonetheless.

Sean and I are trying to take at least one weekend each year for just the two of us to go away. Last year we spent a night away during our anniversary. We didn't go far last year - maybe an hour away. This year we felt a little more brave and made the trek all the way to our Nation's Capital. Now, it's only about 5 hours from our house but the closer it got for us to leave, the more anxious I got about leaving Cooper. Granted, he was staying in the very capable hands of my parents. He even had a field trip and a "Grandma's Day" planned to the Nature Center with both mine and Sean's mom. I knew everything would be ok - and it was. He actually cried when we came to pick him up. Let me tell you that made me feel like Mother of the Year!

I digress. The trip was wonderful. Sean really planned the entire thing and we were exhausted but content at the end. It truly was a trip after my husband's own heart. We stamped literally for three straight days. We saw lots of neat places. I think my personal highlights were George Washington's birthplace and Gettysburg. We had already done the mall area and inside DC so we spent time in about a 1.5 hour radius around the city's center.

Another highlight was getting to spend some time with our friends Brett and Merritt. They were in our Bible Study here in Winston-Salem and we have not seen them for about 3 years. It was so much fun getting to catch up with them, see their little corner of Arlington, and just hang out at their place. They are an awesome couple and we realized just how much we miss seeing them in our Bible Study each week. They are also people who just make you feel right at home at their place - such gracious and welcoming hosts. It was a wonderful way to end busy days to relax and visit with them!
