Oh my! So much has happened recently and I've been very delinquent on my blogging! My apologies!
So...January 31st began my last week of staying home with Tyler before he started preschool and I started my new job! It was a fun week...but bittersweet at the same time!
But wouldn't you know that Tyler decided to take his OFFICIAL FIRST STEPS on January 31st! It was a BIG day in the Sullivan house!
The story goes as follows...I was cooking dinner and Tyler was in the kitchen playing with his magnets on the refrigerator. I turned around to check on him and he was standing with his hands off of the refrigerator and took two small steps. I started screaming and he started laughing at me! This led to a repeat session in order to get me to scream again! What can I say...my kid is amused quite easily!
I tried to get Tyler to repeat the big event for Ben when he came home...but alas, he would not perform.
However, it was only just a couple of days later that he started taking 3 or 4 steps at a time!
We were so excited to show off Tyler's walking skills just in time for Aunt Kate's arrival from Baltimore for the weekend.
We had a great time hosting her!
She arrived on Thursday night and left on Saturday! Highlights included seeing Tyler take lots of baby steps, a trip to Pho, a trip to Ippolito's Italian for dinner, and a "trail run" at daycare, where Tyler got to play in his classroom for about 1/2 an hour while Ben, Kate and I watched.
Kate left on Saturday evening, just in time to get everything ready for our Super Bowl Sunday party. We hosted 14 friends and 5 kids at our house and had a great time. Needless to say I didn't have too much time to watch football or commercials with a house full of people and a new toddling Tyler on my hands but I did manage to get in a cocktail or two (or three) and have fun with the crowd once Tman was in bed for the night!
Enjoy the video of Tyler walking!
