I have been neglecting both of my blogs lately, and I thought I might as well post something on here to pass the time while my hubby plays an F1 racing game (I spent the day playing Epic Mickey so I am just as guilty).

I should say that, this month has been pretty crazy, since Christmas, Clark has taken his first steps, and since then, you can't keep him down. He will still Crawl from time to time if he thinks it will get him to where he needs to be a little bit quicker, but he is now up and mobile. He seems to be following the same time-lines I had as a baby (I walked at nine months). He also seems to have gotten past his "making strange" phase, but that won't be for sure until I go home to visit and see if he gets angry when I run upstairs to get something.
Speaking of stairs, Boogs is also up those a lot as well, he doesn't understand how to go down, and I am trying to teach him, but I don't really know how to teach a baby such things.
Brushing his teeth is also something I am not sure how to do. He gets angry and throws his head around, it's never really clear if I have brushed them or not. Thankfully though, because of the brushing, I was able to notice that he has not just 1, but 2 teeth coming in at the same time. Suddenly all those nights where he woke me up angry, and refusing to go back to bed make sense.
We've had a few nights where we simply let him cry it out because nothing else we did was working, and so far *fingers crossed* he seems to understand that, when Mommy or Daddy lay him down in bed, if he sits up and starts to play, we are not coming back in to play.

The only other thing I have to update is that I am making a resolution to sew more this year, I'm not going to bother with the whole "lose weight" crap. I am just going to stick with eating better, drinking more water, and when the weather is nice, I will take Boogs outside to play, I have a wedding that I am going to be in, in March, but I am not going to stress out about losing weight to fit in the dress. I will however make sure that I don't have to get the dress "let out".

Alright, that about wraps it up, I have nothing clever to say at the moment, so I am going to enjoy the few hours of quiet we have between Boogs going to bed, and then us doing the same.
