Already February!

January at our house was kinda quiet. I am not complaining at all. I personally enjoy the month of January. The craziness of the holidays is over, the kids are not in any sports, and there are not a lot of school functions. We just get to hang out at home together. We have enjoyed several movie nights and a couple family game nights also. I would not suggest challenging Jake to a game of Scrabble Slam. It took multiple rounds to finally beat him. Shelby is the one who finally brought him down.

We have all enjoyed watching Jadon walk all over the place. It feels like it happened overnight. The therapist is watching his posture closely however. From the very start he has leaned to the right (his BPI arm) when he walks. His therapist said we are going to let him get accustomed to walking before we do anything about this. I am not sure at this point what that means so we will see what the future holds there.

Jadon also learned to climb the stairs in January.  He drinks from a sippy cup all the time now except for one bottle at nap and bedtime.  He is getting so big!

One morning this month Jacob was getting his shoes on so he could go out to catch the bus.  He was telling Jadon that he had to get ready to go to school.  When Jacob stood up and went to get his bag he found a certain little boy sitting on his bag with a very big grin on his face.  Jacob just started laughing.  Apparently Jadon did not want his big brother to go to school that day.  He wanted his big brother to stay home and play with him.  LOL!  It was so cute and I captured some pictures of course!

Now it is February. This is the big party month. Jadon turns one!! Where did the time go? I can't believe it has been a year already. So many things have happened and I have learned so many new things in the past year. Anyway, time to decide on a theme for the big bash! It should be a lot of fun!
