Great Day!

Yesterday was a great day!  We went into the day with low expectations.  "What would you like to do today? I don't know, what do you want to do?"  So, we lazed around and spent time having a bit of fun as a family instead of trying to run errands, get any to-do's off our list, etc.  It was delightful.  

We took Jackson outside on his Spiderman bike, which does have pedals (in contrast to his balance bike) and doesn't have training wheels anymore.  After a lot of complaining about not wanting to ride, Jackson was riding his bike sans training wheels!  He needs a little help starting but he has all but mastered going and stopping.

Also yesterday, Matthew decided he would test out walking on his own.  Previously he'd walk a few steps if we'd hold him and he'd lunge forward a few steps to get to the other person. He always needed someone to help him start out.  Yesterday, he WALKED a few steps to/from the couch.  No help needed.  It was a beautiful sight!  Our sweet baby Matthew has persevered-- and is walking!

We celebrated the big accomplishments of yesterday with dinner out at one of my favorites, Freebirds.  Surprisingly, all the kids were pleasant, ate well and it was a nice time.  A great ending to a great day!!
