First Steps (video)

Lilyann is finally starting to get some walking courage. Many a time, you will see her take a quick step between furniture or toys. But if you put her in front of you and try to get her to walk to you..she just plops down and crawls to you. Well, we have a few steps of success!! Lilyann is now taking 3 consecutive steps--given the last one is her falling-stepping toward you...but what a success. As you can see from the video.

Adding to the steps, Lilyann has also learned to clap her hands. She is so proud of herself when she claps her hands. Earlier this week, Lilyann woke up in the middle of the night crying. So, I went in to check on her and see what she needed and she saw me and she started clapping her hands..it was too cute (well, as cute as it can be at 2 in the morning...lol) Tomorrow, Lilyann turns 14 months old..and she truly is learning new things everyday.

Dakota had his 3 yr checkup today. He is a healthy little man...weighing 30 lbs. (32%) He is 38.5 inches tall (76%) Doing quite well. We are working on changing Dakota's diet and adding in more fiber rich foods. Dakota seems to have chronic constipation. The culprit is more than likely dairy, but if we took away dairy, it would be like cutting off Dakota's leg. So, we are going to compromise by letting him still have milk and adding in more juices. Today was fairly successful. He finished a cup of apple juice so that he could have his cup of milk. Hopefully, we can stay on the successful road with both children.

A little flax seed oil in his oatmeal will help with constipation too - if he'll eat oatmeal...BrotherBear has issues with textured foods a lot of the time.

Thanks for following our Bear Country Adventures and I must say, your 'About Me' is one of the best written ones I've ever read!

Forgive me for not reading blogs in AGES!! I had a lot of catching up to do. The only reason I got to update a post on my blog was because I stayed up until 1:00 in the morning doing it...all for the sake of my husband too. He wanted his Dad to see the pics :). The things we do to show our love for our spouse :).

I was thrilled to see the little walker! A whole new world is about to begin...AGAIN! You can do it though. You can do all things through Christ who gives you strength. Keep up the Good Work! It truly is well worth it. What a gift and treasure little ones are from the Lord.

Many Abundant Blessings to You and Your House,
Cousin Christy
