Officially walking. Maybe I will even put him in the "walkers" class at church on Sunday. I actually think I like walking better than crawling. I don't know why necessarily but I do. Today he is 13 months and more beautiful than ever. He has had a cold this week but I think its getting better. Yesterday I had a breakdown. It just all came to head after being couped up in the house all week with a sick dude. I realize how much of my life is about everybody else. I would not want to have another job in the world, I love being home but it is consuming and easy to just push my own needs aside but then after going so long that way, I crash. So that was yesterday and my amazing husband stayed the afternoon with Keller and let me get out of the house. I felt like a different mommy when I came home. I was refreshed, inspired, freshly manicured:) I realize how much I need time away and alone. So I am going to try and find a permanent Mother's Day Out Program for the bear in the Spring because right now we are just on a drop in list at one place. Until then I drink in the sporadic moments and hours I have to myself.
