Xavier turns one year old tomorrow! I really can barely believe it. Not only that, but on the day Xavier turns one, Ali will be four weeks old. Where the heck did the past month go. Better yet, where did the past year go. Oh well, maybe things will slow down one day .
So now that I’ve expressed my shock and awe a little bit, I’ll give you an update of what’s been going on. Xavier started walking!… and then stopped. The day we brought Ali home from the hospital Xavier took his first steps. He was doing great, he took about five steps across the living room. We think it was mainly to take some of the spotlight from Ali . For the next week or so we worked with him and made him try to walk as often as possible, and he was doing great and having fun doing it. Now, he absolutely refuses. We’ll try to get him to walk and he just plops down and crawls every time. I guess he’s done trying to steal attention from Ali.
Ali is doing good too though, she’s gained almost a pound, and grown like half an inch. It’s amazing how much more solid and less fragile she feels now. Which is a good thing, it just happens really fast. She’s such a great baby though, she sleeps nice and quietly, and usually only gets up two times a night.
Stay tuned for updates from Xavier’s birthday party tomorrow. Megan and Rhonda have been working on a dinosaur cake that’s going to be awesome!
