I'm Growing, I'm Growing Ev'ryday

It's so fun when the little ones start learning new things. Our babies are typically slow to do everything--slow to roll over, slow to sit up, slow to crawl, slow to walk, etc. In fact, Elisabeth was not even crawling at one year old. The nursery director at First Baptist Church even approached me with the number for the Shriners, thinking that something was wrong with her bone structure that was preventing her from crawling. We had her checked out, but nothing was wrong. She was just a very content baby. She started crawling at 13 1/2 months and began walking at 18 months. I remember a difficult time having two babies (Elisabeth and Budge are 15 months apart) that didn't walk. :)

Well, here is our little Tyler. He is 7 months old tomorrow and is finally beginning to try to sit by himself. He seems to be doing a little better. Taking baby steps. Pun intended. ;o)

Yesterday when I posted the pictures of my fall creations, I forgot to post a picture of my other creation--a pumpkin centerpiece of sorts. A family had given us scads of what was mostly junk. I took a fall centerpiece, disassembled it, and reworked all of its contents, painting and adding in some new stuff as well. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. It is sitting on a shelf by my front door.
