She is so close to walking! She'll take up to 10 steps at a time. She is just SO cautious. She could totally walk everywhere if she just let herself. But you can see her start to think about it and then she'll just sit down and crawl.
We took the kids swimming at the Rec Center and it was a big hit! We had so much fun, I think we're going to make it a weekly thing.
Claire was moved up to a big carseat. I think she's a fan. :)
Valentine's Day balloons with cousin Lola!
Johnny LOVES the group Pentatonix so we took him to their concert in SLC on February 17th. It was an hour and a half concert and he lasted an hour before it got too loud for him and he wanted to leave. But he loved it and he loves when people ask him about it.
Johnny walked up to my dad and said, "Can I have one drink? I'm not asking for a hundred drinks. Just one, okay."
Another time Johnny walked towards my dad saying, "Daddy. Daddy." My dad responded with, "I'm not your dad. Your dad is downstairs." Johnny responded with, "But you are a dad. You have kids just like Marcus has kids."
Johnny laid with his head on the couch and his feet on the ottoman and said, "I'm a drawbridge." Grandpa Gilson asked him what a drawbridge does and Johnny replied, "It opens and closes."
I heard Johnny yell "Help!" from the other room and when I ran in he said, "I was stuck on the couch."
Me: "Oh, really?"
Johnny: "Yeah, like this." He then lays on the arm of the couch and says, "then I wiggled around and got free."
Me: "Oh, I'm so glad!"
Johnny: "Yep! That's my story. It's called the boy who got stuck."
My niece accidentally scratched my eye a couple weeks ago and so I asked Johnny to kiss it. After he kissed it I said, "Thanks buddy! You're so great." To which he responded, "I know. I'm a good kisser."
Johnny asked our friend Mani what a bully is.
Mani: "It's when someone is mean to someone else."
Johnny: "ohhh.. so like mommy is a bully..."
(He did retract that statement later and told people I wasn't a bully)
My brother and sister went back up to school in Idaho and he was telling his Gilson grandparents about it. He said he was really sad his Aunt Shelby went back to school and then said, "Sad means you miss someone because they went away. It's okay to be sad. But I can still be happy."
He is wise beyond his years.
