Walk Tall

I just took black beauty, oh I mean Einstein {that's one of his many nicknames}, out to go potty, and wow it is cold outside!! Brrrr! It is really starting to feel a bit like winter now. Goodness gracious. What a nice change from June, July, and August 100+ degree weather. I think I kinda like it. I'll take it over the scorching heat any day.

Anyway, do any of you feel like you can never get your house in order or even clean for that matter? I do. When we moved I had good intentions. I mean, it was a fresh start. I had a clean slate to organize and have some kind of order in our home. Well... that didn't exactly happen. You should see our closet. Total disaster. It looks like a tornado swept through. I seriously, well kind of, want to move again so I can try again. But that's probably not gonna happen for a while, so I seriously need to get in deep clean mode and get this house in order.

Well tonight was not the night. I did not have an ounce of motivation to deep clean. My closet and a few other places in the house remain in filth {I'm spilling my dirty secrets here}, but hey at least my kitchen and living room are in perfect order. Did I seriously just ramble on about cleaning the house for two paragraphs? I'll stop now. But does anyone feel that way? Or is it just me?

In the midst of my surface cleaning tonight, I noticed something. I had been vacuuming the living room for a few minutes, and suddenly I realized Noah was walking! I mean really walking! Not just walking from one object to another, but walking all over the house. How did that happen? I couldn't believe my eyes. My big boy was walking tall, and doing so confidently. Wow. And of course, being his mommy and a little biased, I think he is the cutest walking baby alive. And you know by now my video camera was near by to capture these steps of confidence. What a proud mommy I am tonight.

Look at him go! How sweet. I'm loving the saggy diaper. Haha.

I have loved reading all of the "thankful" comments coming in for the Giveaway post. If you don't know about the Giveaway, you need to know, because I am giving away some fun goodies. So, click here if you want to read about it. I want everyone to comment {yes family, you are included} so join in and tell me what you are thankful for. Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

I've got the Biggest Loser to watch tonight, so I've got to go! It's gonna be good.

Good night!

YES! Yes, yes, yes, and yes! Have such a hard time keeping the apartment clean. So glad to know I'm not the only one. Ian's room and bathroom are always pretty clean. Kitchen stays more or less clean, but that is a daily battle. Our closet is horrendous! If it makes you feel better, I'm sure it beats your's absolutely horrible.

You're not alone in the house cleaning. I hardly have the motivation myself a lot of times. I keep my living room and kitchen as clean as possible. It's definitely hard when there is a baby in the house. You clean the toys up and they end up right back where they were.
That video is so sweet. Again the perfect song!! Way to go Noah! I can't wait to see Grace walking and to experience the excitement!

I have a really hard time keeping my house clean. It gets cleaned up and that night when I get home that night It's messy again.
He really is cute walking all over the place.
