Andrew finally mastered crawling about 10 days ago. So now he shakes his little booty while he crawls all over the place trying to keep up with everyone else in the house. When he's had enough, he just cries. Kind of sad...mostly funny.
So Sunday I was surprised when I was in the living room, helping Jacob with his jacket, and I looked down to see that Andrew had pulled himself up on the couch. As if that weren't enough, then he started cruising! I guess he realizes the only way to keep up around our house is if you're up on 2 feet! :) I'm very proud of him!
In other news, I have to say a BIG Thank You to Brian for giving me Friday evening and half of Saturday off to spend the time doing whatever the hell I wanted! And what did I do with my time??! I finished with my Christmas shopping. We still have to wrap everything, but the presents that can be wrapped have been purchased.
I took the boys to see Santa on Saturday. I arrived at the mall when it opened, and we had to wait in line for an hour to see the jolly old elf. Jacob was fascinated with Santa while we were standing in line, so I thought he would be okay with taking a picture with him. Plus I was bribing him with cookies the entire way. No such luck. There was one kid in front of us, and Jacob started backing away from the line. When it was time to sit on Santa's lap, he had a total meltdown. Andrew was not scared at all. I love the picture because Jacob is trying really hard to smile. Maybe next year I won't have to be in the picture.
Here is last year's picture. We are improving. :)
