This week, Spencer took a day off so we could take the kids to the water park. Such a fun day! I wish I had more pictures, but we locked our camera in the locker all day. Oops! So here's the one we got of us as we left.

I know it isn't really necessary to mention a 10 month birthday, but I just have to so I can tell you all that Ian is officially walking now! Yeah!! He has been taking a couple steps here and there, but tonight he decided to really walk. He was in the kitchen with me while I was cleaning up dinner and I think he was a little upset that I closed the dishwasher, but instead of getting down and crawling to me crying, he took 6 steps! We quickly whipped out the video camera to get it all on tape and he walked about 6 more steps. That seems to be his limit so far. He took a few little walks like that tonight, but we know he'll be walking more and more each day! Madeleine also walked at 10 months and we weren't sure that Ian would be on the same track. He has quite a bit more weight to balance than she did at the same age. He really surprised us and we are so pleased!

If you are interested in a teenage love story, check out this series. I know it must make some interesting statements about me when I admit how much I loved it and then say it's a teenage love story. Again, emabarassing! I can't deny it. And let's be honest, it's the author's fault. If she weren't so capable, I wouldn't have been affected like I was. Now that I have finished I can get to reading books on foreclosure that Spencer suggested I read. I imagine that will bring me back to reality.

Last Tuesday was my birthday and it was so great! I have really been wanting some new clothes but going shopping with Madeleine and Ian is hardly possible. I can take them to Target and Costco and the grocery store. That's about it. So, for my birthday, Spencer took half the day off so he could keep the kids while I went shopping by myself. It was heavenly! I couldn't have asked for a better day! Plus, I found some great deals and met up with a couple friends for lunch. So fun!
Then for dinner, Spencer took me to Firefly in Studio City (definitely worth checking out) and to see 1408. Drew (Spencer's brother) came over to watch the kids. A great day all around.
While we were out, Madeleine tried her hand at photography. Not too bad, eh?
