Step Right Up!
Last Saturday Sofia took her first truly independent steps. After a few days she was toddling back and forth across the living room with growing confidence. It has been so much fun to watch. Audrey is close behind her but a little more tentative- she’ll take a couple of steps, but beyond that she is happier crawling for the moment.
With the advent of walking, the girls are about to make another change- next week they begin in the toddler room at daycare! This is great because it means they will be in a more stimulating environment and around a lot of active, happy kids. It’s also nice for us because it means it will be about $60 a week less- which we’ll just be putting it towards their college funds, but every penny counts!
Sofia is not the only one working on her footwork. I am on track for the half marathon in a couple of weeks and can’t wait to get out and run it with my friends! It will be wonderful to cross that finish line and accomplish a goal I have had since the girls were born and I made a promise to myself that I’d get back on the road as a real runner.
Feel the Burn!
This week, Tony and I started working out with a trainer at the gym. We thought it’s be great for Tony to get a little jumpstart on getting back in shape, so between now and the end of the year, you’ll find Tony and I sweating it out at the gym 3 days a week. It’s really fun- except for the wall sits, and the push ups, and the crunches…. ugh!
