Last Week of Summer!

This was my last week of summer vacation and boy, were we busy!! Since I am tired and need to hit the sack early for the first night of work, this will be short and sweet! I only have a couple pictures...

Met Sharla and Sandra for lunch. Played at home.

Met Brad, Dad, Al, Bella, and Jeremy for lunch at SWA. John started to wave at people! May not look like a real wave, but it seems like he is moving his arm purposefuly. We also took him to see a plane in the hangar- John was interested in all the big things in there! Afterwards Al and I went to North Park Mall to see the playhouses. Playhouses were disappointing, but at least we got out of the house for a little while!

Went to last playgroup of the summer with mom's group. It was fun b/c there were just a couple of us there. John stood up for about 5 seconds too!

Went to a storytime at Barnes and Nobles with two friends. John stood up again! After playing in the play area in the mall, we went to cheer practice to help Shelby fix the dance for Kit Kamp. John was fascinated with the cheering for about 10 minutes and then decided to climb on the bleachers. Then we met Abbie and Ashley at Starbucks.

Went to the Railway Museum in Plano for storytime with three friends. John liked it but got antsy halfway through. John liked the puppet dog! It was too crowded to go into the railway car so I will have to go back with Brad another day. Then the group went to Willow Bend for lunch and then the Sunflower room for new mom's meeting. John played with some new friends!

Joint celebration for my birthday and Tyler's birthday. We went to the Arboretum in the morning (so pretty!) and then to mom and dad's for a BBQ. Very fun!

Played at home, cleaned the house, went to the mall to play in the playarea and then swimming after dinner. BIG NEWS: John took his first real steps! He pulled himself up on the leg of his high chair, turned to me (sitting on the floor with him), put both arms straight up in the air, walked one full step, then fell on me with the second step! I was SOOOOO excited and I think he was too because he had a big smile on his face! I didn't think he would start walking soon, but now I am not convinced. :)

That rounds out the week. Day care starts tomorrow and hopefully John will make some new friends!
