Matt and I want to share our exciting news. No we are not expecting so keep reading. Lane finally decided to figure out how to crawl. We were sure he was going to skip this stage but over the course of a day, he went from not being able to in the morning to crawling across the room in the evening. We are excited but realize our lives will never be the same. He is already getting into things that we would rather he not, such as the entertainment center. I guess you have to take the good with the bad.
Lane is in bed and Matt and I are in the Christmas spirit. We wrapped presents, made cookies and other goodies, and just finished addressing our Christmas cards. We have one family Christmas done and I think 8 more to go if you count just opening presents with the three of us.
Lane had physical therapy on Friday and the therapist is happy with the progress he is making towards becoming independently mobile but he is not quite strong enough to get his bum up and crawl. He is becoming more and more interested in walking so I think even if he does learn to crawl, it will not be long before he is walking.
Now I leave you with a picture of Lane eating a cookie. Healthy, no. Cute, YES!
Today was a snow day. The first of many, I am sure. Lane decided to get up at his normal time of 6:50 so I did not get to sleep in. I had big plans to get things done today but other than laundry, I have not been very successful. I have been playing around with this blog this afternoon while Lane sleeps. I really am going to try to do better at posting updates and pictures. Lane really has changed so much and he thinks he is pretty funny. Below are some pictures that were taken this past month:
It has been awhile since I have posted. Well in the last few months, Lane has had tubes put in both ears, got more teeth (a total of 6) and started crawling - alittle. We have switched babysitters and are really happy with that decision. Um...Lane keeps getting cuter and happier by the day.
We are finally getting tubes! We visited the ear nose throat specialist today and he said Lane ready. That is music to our ears. We go in Tuesday morning to have them put in. They said it takes about 15 min but they have to put him under. We hope Lane's ear infection days are almost over!
Other things of interest, Lane started seeing a physical therapist about a month ago. She is coming up with ways to get late to tolerate being on his belly and eventually crawl. We are already seeing a little more tolerance...but I still am not going to say he loves it.
Lane did awesome on our trip to visit Jyll and Oscar. I never would have guessed that he would have done so well on the trip there. It took us about 7hrs to get there. We ate out with Jyll (Oscar had to work until midnight) then we went back to Jyll's place. Lane, Matt and I stayed at their place and Mom and Rod stayed at a hotel. Matt and I slept on a futon for half the night but gave up around 2am and went to sleep on the couch. On Saturday we went to the hotel and went swimming. Oscar took us for a turor of the base in the afternoon and we walked through the Calvery Museum on base. We grilled out at Jyll and Oscar's that night and played Battle of the Sexes - needless to say, the women won. On Sunday we hung around in the morning and then went out for lunch before heading off. The car ride home went well too, not quite as well as the way there but good enough to call it a success.
