Here I am!

We are alive!  I promise!  All is well and good.  I just don't have anything to write.  No, that is not true.  Stuff has actually happened in my life the past week, I just haven't been in the right frame of mind to write.   But here I am, and I am going to try.  If it sucks though, it is not my fault.

First and the most exciting in the entire world, is that Elijah took his first steps this past weekend!  It was amazing.  Just two little steps between Don-e and I but still the greatest feat to ever be achieved.  Oh, but we did not get it on camera.  Oh no.  The stupid thing was dead, and then when we plugged it in and tried to recreate the event super-baby disappeared into a pile of crawling mush.  All week though it has been amazing to watch him continue to try out this new trick.  He actually got three steps in a row the other day!


I have been thinking about the day he was born a bit the last few days, and while I will tell the story here, now is not the time.  What I  have been thinking about though, is how I need to make nice with someone that will have a baby sometime in the near future.  I would like to experience a birth from the other end of the table.  I'm pretty sure that my sister will have kids one day, but I am not sure that she will be open to very many people being in the room.  I might be able to sneak in at some point though, and I am pretty sure that at that point she wont be focused on chasing me out!
