We Have A (Almost) Walker!

Whelp, Ayden is now taking steps!  I posted a video on Facebook and Instagram, and everyone says he IS walking.  I hesitate to actually call it walking though.  It's more like taking steps.  He took a record 5 steps on December 27th at my family Christmas gathering, but then he didn't do it again until the past few days and it was sporadic.  As of last night, he is now trying to walk everywhere!  He's very unstable and wobbly, but he has gotten as far as 7-8 steps now.

I am learning that this new stage also comes with more bumps and bruises.  I'm fairly certain that he gave himself a black eye this morning when he fell into a chair.  We'll see what it looks like when he wakes up from his nap, but it was a huge welt when I put him down.

Rylee isn't too far behind.  Now that Ayden is taking steps and trying to walk everywhere, she is also becoming more brave.  She hasn't taken more than 2 steps though, as of yet.  I'm sure that will change very, very soon.

And the next stage begins.....


I am going to look at a house this afternoon for us to possibly rent.  Online it looks like it could be the perfect house for us!  It's 400 sq. feet bigger than our current house, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, large laundry room, garage with shelves and workbench, covered patio, huge kitchen with lots of counter space, central air conditioning!  It's not available until February 13th, which would be PERFECT timing!  The closing on our house got pushed back about a week or two (don't know the exact date yet), so the timing is perfect for us.  

The only problem is there are other people looking at the house today as well, so we already know we have competition for it.  Fingers are crossed.


  1. Yay for steps/walking! It's a whole new ballgame!

    Good luck on the house! You may have to be ready to pull the trigger right after looking at it if it will work!

  2. Woohoo! Go Ayden! I hope the house works out for you. :)

  3. He is almost walking! Oh so cute watching his face and seeing how proud he is. I hope things go well with the house.

  4. Aw I bet they are too cute walking (taking steps) :) Best of luck with the rent house, hope you guys get it!

  5. Walking! At least you're moving into a new place so that instead of taking everything OUT of where they can get at it, you can just focus on not putting it there in the first place. :)

  6. I have to say, disappointed not a video, pictures of those 2 cuties but you are forgiven as I know life is hectic!!! Just LOVE the pictures!!!! FINGERS CROSSED, PRAYERS SENT for this being the house for you and that you are the lucky couple that they pick to rent it from them!!!!!!!

  7. Now that they're walking, you can totally put them to work helping you pack and move! Good luck with everything - sounds like you're going to have your hands full!
