Baby Steps!!!

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 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!
