Step By Step...Oooh Baby...

So Tori was just a walking machine yesterday!!! And by "machine" I mean that she took 5-6 steps back and forth between me and Sandy. It was amazing. We were both screaming and hugging her and I was crying. She is just such a little amazing kiddo and I'll try to post a video soon.

Zoe got jealous so she started walking back and forth between us so that we would yell and scream for her too. So cute.

It's been a great week. Ian's sister Miranda and her boyfriend Jud came to visit for the week. They played and played with the kids and it was so fun. We went outside every afternoon and were able to let the kids run/crawl around since we were man to man. It was heavenly. By the way, Tori crawls like a fiend - even on concrete. She has holes in the knees of all her pants and she scrapes up her toes if she doesn't have her shoes on. She's learned, though, that this hurts, so she now crawls on the cement and picks up her feet behind her. Ian says it's like one of those wind up toys that walks on the table. It's really cute/brilliant.

Anyway, it's been fun to have family here, and I've gotta say that this is the time of year to live in Florida. I actually had my air on yesterday. IT's been 80 degrees and gorgeous. I took the girls for a walk this afternoon and there were tons of kids running through the neighborhood and parents chillin in their lawn chairs on their driveways. So fun. Come visit!

Having recently witnessed Tori racing around the room, all I can say is "YOU GO GIRL!" What a wonderful new accomplishment and how proud she is of herself! So glad you are all in our life! Keep up the awesome parenting.
