Our little munchkin finally figured out that he already knew how to walk. Isn't it amazing how that works? I think all of us have these abilities that we don't realize we have, and the only reason we don't do them is that we don't think we can. And then one day, when faced with a challenge, we take a leap of faith and try it. Then we realize, "wait... I know how to do this! And I'm GOOD at it, too!"
That was Charlie today. After months of really being able to walk on his own, though he didn't have the self confidence to try it, he decided today that he COULD walk, and that he could walk WELL, too.
Watch and witness his amazing abilities!
We are proud of our little boy... and can't believe he's growing so fast. He turns 1 in just over a week!

Kade has his first sleepover last night with a fellow 2-year old named Alex. He's in our ward, and we wanted to give his parents, who are good friends of ours, a night out on the town. SO, what resulted (before bed time) was mass pandamonium, with air-mattress jumping and ice cream eating and all sorts of other chaos. However, once bed-time came, it got quiet quickly, and they went to sleep rather smoothly. If this is what all sleepovers are like, we can do it! (Ha! I KNOW they're not like this most of the time... but maybe with little kids it is? If that's the case, our friends have offered to watch our two boys, and Aaron and I will get a night on the town. SWEET!) Here are a couple of videos of the boys in the house having fun on the air-mattress. Charlie did join in on the fun later... ;)

This is one of Kade's many favorite books. He asks for it all the time. We read it all the time. I'm serious. And, perhaps like many other children, he memorizes his favorite books. Even after just a few readings, if he likes a book he can finish the sentance or phrase. In the mornings when Aaron brings him in the room for "jump on Mommy time!"-- yeah, talk about a nice wake-up call-- he'll say "No more monkey jumping bed!" And then, he'll jump on me. And on the bed. Jumping... another one of his FAVORITE things to do. Serious. I guess he doesn't think he's a monkey... So, maybe I need to start reading the book differently?
"Eight little Kades jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head!
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
'No more Kades jumping on the bed!' "
Naw... I don't mind so much, so long he doesn't jump on the furniture, little monkey boy!
So, some of his favorite books right now are:
Mother May I?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
Anything with a train or cars in it
No more monkeys jumping on the bed
Scriptures (the scripture reader books with pictures put out by the church)
How do dinosoars say goodnight (this series is AWESOME!)
Bear wants more!
The board book version of "Where is my mother?" (he loves to say, "down down down, plop!" and "snort!" and "oh no!")
Green Eggs and Ham
CTR (he says, "Choose Right! Choose right!")
