Big news....

We have some big news here. Hunter took his first 2 steps on his own today! He only took 2 - but he made a lot of progress. I set him down to play on the floor in our office and he didn't want to sit. So I stood him up and he stood there on his own. Then he took 2 very normal looking steps before sitting down. We tried it quite a few more times, and he'd just stand there for a few minutes (and standing very well too!) and then he'd sit down.

He's also been trying to stand up from the floor - but ends up doing what looks like a head-stand. He loves holding anyone's hand to walk (including Gabe) and walks really well with just the slightest bit of support (I think it's a confidence thing). So watch out - Hunter might be on the run soon!

Hunter can't be that big already!! What a fun and exciting time. I love the mental image of Gabe helping Hunter walk around. And what a handsome boy!

Hooray for Hunter! Give him and that cute brother of his some loves from Nana and Papa.

Wow- Congrats Hunter!

He's growing up so fast.

Lucy's started crawling this last week out of the blue. It's still an army type crawl, but she sure gets around when she wants to.

Way to go Hunter. You're in for it now Joanna. When my second little guy started being up and walking around, my life turned into chaos and hasn't stopped! Things are about to get even more exciting!!!

Wow. As my German colleagues used to say, "Congratulations and condolences."

Congrats on the showroom and factory, too.

Love you much, Sandra
