Ok, ok, enough about that child of mine---does anyone care what's new with his parents? I'm sure you're all thinking "yes, of course" but what you really mean is "no, not so much"..... :) It's ok. We're boring.
Seriously, though, life has been pretty good around here. We've been taking nice evening walks, we both love our work, and we've been sleeping through the night consistently for about 1-2 months now. We actually even went on a double date last night with our newest and bestest friends Jamie and Doug. They have two young kids--Jamie is now an associate StrollerFit instructor and Doug and Andrew have a lot in common as well. We had a nice night out on the town without the kids. Grammy D watched Benjamin and she said that after not eating his dinner, he wolfed down the ice cream cone she bought him. Grandparents. They are all crazy and follow their own rules for your children. (Of course we love you all--especially the free babysitting ;)
Alright, I guess I can't say nothing about Benjamin. He learned to go the stairs today. He's been going up them for a couple months now, has fallen down a few stairs several times by accident, and finally today practiced a great deal and became a professional-come-down-the-stairs-er. We're so proud. Still no walking though. He's doing just what he did with the crawling....taking his time till he can figure out how to do it like a pro from the get-go.
I hope everyone's well. I'd love to hear from you all and hear how you're doing. :)
