Monkey has started walking here and there. He takes a few steps, waits a week, then repeats! I think it will be some time before he actually takes off and keeps it up.
It's feeling December-y today! I went to Walmart to do some much needed grocery shopping. When I left it was nice out, way too nice for December. I had on a Tshirt and a light sweater. Of course, when I come out it is freezing cold and pouring rain. My sweater went on the baby's head and I got a shower! Sooo cold. Soooo wet. Note to self: watch weather report before leaving house next time.
In six days it will be Monkey's 1st birthday!!!! I'm way too excited for a child's birthday party! We are having a Winter One-derland theme! I have tons of snowflakes to hang and balloons and fake snow. I put all his month photos on sparkling snowflakes to hang on a tiny Christmas tree we have. Today I bought cake mix and frosting for his birthday cake! I'm going to make a penguin cake! We have hot chocolate and blue koolaid and marshmallows and candy canes and cookies, oh my! And as a party favor, I got all the kids mittens, which I'm also using as a decoration. I even got snowflake wrapping paper for his gift so it would match! I'm such a dork! I'm even taking off work Friday so I can decorate the entire living room area with winter galore! It.will.be.awesome.
