Tanner really showed off today.  After he woke up from his nap we got him ready to go to the bowling alley.  We like to go watch Nick practice.  Nick was playing around with him a little and Tanner started standing by himself for longer periods.  I told Nick I bet he would start walking soon.  

We got to the bowling alley and Tanner wanted to show off to the lady working there.  He started standing again.  30 seconds at a time.  And then during one of those times standing, he took 3 steps.  We cheered for him and he squealed and giggled.  And then, it was like he realized he could do it.  He just started taking off.  He took 8 steps, 3 different times (all to the bowling ball racks, which he loves).  And then he decided to walk all over the place! We got home and he walked all the way down the hallway!  It's crazy how FAST it happened!  

He also did something cute in the bath tonight.  We have a ledge on the bath tub next to the sink and Tanner just LOVES to stand up and place his toys on the ledge.  We don't like him standing in the bath tub and tell him to sit down whenever he stands.  Tonight he stood up while playing with a water bottle and Nick told him to sit down.  He did, and as he did he let go of the bottle and clapped.  Just like his daddy does when he sits down after being told to.  He was a happy boy!

Christmas card bloopers

I mentioned in the last post how Tanner hasn't been feeling well.  We really should have waited to take these pictures when he was in a good mood, but we were running out of time!

Late Halloween post and rambling (Photo dump)

In the past 2 weeks Tanner has cut his 4th tooth (top center, which was the worst one yet), caught a cold, and the cold hung on for 10 days before turning into a sinus infection. Also, my 25th birthday passed, as did Halloween.  I can give you tons of reasons why I didn't post here, but in reality, I'm just a lazy blogger.  Once Tanner goes to bed I'd rather cuddle on the couch with my hubby than post.  

But lately I've been going through some of my past posts from when I was pregnant with Tanner and I am so thankful I blogged back then and that I can reminisce on those past times.    So I need to just get over it and post more.  I do enjoy it!  I just need to make it more routine. So now, without further ado, Tanner's first Halloween!

Jack Jack and Mickey Mouse!

Nick was in the middle of a conversation but I wanted a picture! Haha!

Someone did NOT like the blow up pumpkin!


And like I mentioned above, Tanner has been sick and just miserable for a while.  He will act just fine, but in a split second he gets grumpy.  We tried to carve and paint pumpkins and let him help, but it was a complete failure!  He was obviously grossed out with the pumpkin guts, and the paint.  So most of these pictures are of him upset and complaining.

He did love the pumpkin seeds though, and fussed when I pulled them out of his mouth!

ONE smiling picture out of a hundred!

Yup. This face summed up the entire day.

Yes, we were BOTH covered in paint! I'm not showing the other pictures of my face and shirt...

Time to go in and take a bath!
