I finally have a toddler!
 My little man was in no rush to start walking, can you blame him? He had a mom to carry him everywhere, no need to do it himself :) A little over a week ago my dad and step mother were in Indianapolis which is only a couple hours from me so John Thomas and I got to spend the day with them. We met them an the Indianapolis Fair Grounds where there was a horse show. The fair grounds is huge!! We spent the majority of the day exploring and JT walked (holding someones hand) the majority of the time. My mom had spent a week with us the week before and spent a lot of time getting him to walk only holding onto one finger so he was getting more comfortable with walking. We spent the day with them on Thursday.......

and on Friday JT took about 10 steps by himself! he was so proud of himself! Smiling and laughing the whole time. Here's a little video from Sunday - every time before he would start walking he would clap for himself. Too funny

Yesterday morning I was in the kitchen and I hear John Thomas saying "Mom Mom" and I turn around and he is walking across the kitchen. So cute! and sweet that he wanted me to see him. Love that little boy!!!
A few pictures from our week

Makes my heart smile. I don't ever want to forget how he curls himself in a little ball to sleep.

Sweetest dog on the planet! JT loves Kennedy!!
 He spends most of his day chasing her, laying on her, and pulling her hair. 

I was cleaning in the kitchen and thought JT was playing in the living room, go to check on him....
he has opened the screen door and is playing outside!

Happy baby :)


  1. Oh my goodness, what a BIG boy!! He's adorable as always!!
