Finally...I know!!

Okay, so i know it's been F-O-R-E-V-E-R since i blogged, and I'm so sorry.  The holidays have kept us all so busy, plus we're in the process of getting our house ready to put on the market, and James is walking (which totally changed our life!), so needless to say taking pictures, let alone blogging, has not been a priority.   Anyway, here are a few from last month - James 11 months.
 he loves to snuggle in bed.  he has this big puppy dog that he totes with him everywhere.  we find him cuddled up to either this, his teddy bear, or his pillow in bed when we check on him.  wish he'd snuggle with us like this during the day!
 he loves to drive the car while dad is in the store.  he even makes the "vroom vroom" sounds!

 these were taken a few weeks ago when he was just beginning to walk.  his winter coat must really mess with his balance, because he instantly topples over when we put it on him.  he doesn't seem to mind too much!

 Lacy is starting to tolerate James and will actually join the family in the living room again....she usually quarantines herself to the kitchen corner.  her ears are still back, but at least she's not running away!  they'll be best buds soon, we hope.

November 22nd Steven graduated from the Maneuver Captain's Career Course at Ft. Knox.  Congratulations!  Now he's qualified to take a Company Command if that opportunity comes his way.  We're hoping instead for a spot in the Special Forces Qualification Course (Q-Course).  He tries out for the Special Forces Jan 8-28, and if he makes it we'll be moving to Ft. Bragg, NC and he'll start the 15 month Q Course.  Please keep him in your prayers, we're hoping that's what will happen! 
Steven getting his diploma/certificate.  I'm bummed about the lack of pictures, James was being a little difficult...I know it's hard to believe! ;-)
all smiles here pushing his stroller.  he loves to run the show!

This is up at my parent's house at Thanksgiving.  James found this humidifier and was pushing it around all weekend, this was just before he really took off walking.  It must have been just the tool he needed to get those muscles ready, because as soon as we returned home that Sunday night he was off and walking!

James is such a big boy! I know how fun it is to have your house on the market with a walking toddler on your hands. We put our house for sale just when Ava started walking. I am sure you will have no problem selling your awesome house!! Merry Christmas!
