An apology

I owe you all a big apology.  Huge.

You see, I was due to pick some winners 4 hours ago.  And I haven't yet.

I promised myself there would be four new reviews up today.  Yes, four.  But they're not.

Do I have a good excuse?  I don't know...but I DO have an excuse.

You all know I'm a  mommy blogger, right?  Notice the mommy part comes first.  So today...today I had to take a break from bloggerhood because

Stinky took his first steps today!!

And I spent the better part of the day re-enacting those precious first steps...over and over and over.  


Have you ever heard of kids who don't really take "first steps?"  The go from standing against and cruising against furniture straight to walking walking?  Yeah.  I've always been a skeptic too.  I always think, "Yeah, right.  That is SOOO not possible.  They ALL take a few shaky baby-giraffe steps at a time for days or weeks on end first."  Yep, that's me. 

Except guess what?  Stinky had NEVER taken a step before today.  Never.  He'd NEVER stood unassisted.  Leaned?  Yes.  Cruised?  Like a pro.  He could have won the wall-cruising contest, in fact.  But nary a step.  

I sat in amazement, though, as the little guy creeped his way around the corner, holding a storage tote with just one hand.  He got to the end of it and kept going.  One.  Two.  Three.  Four.  Five.  Six.  Seven.  SEVEN steps!  Steady.  Sturdy.  Stong.  And since then?  Like it's his job.  Like he's been doing it all his life.  Eight, nine, ten steps in a shot.  From couch to chair.  From chair to mommy.  From mommy to kitchen chair.  WALKING!  Walking.  

I apologize for the delays in bloggy-land.  Stinky's had my attention today.

That's wonderful!!! I'd be distracted too, and family always comes first anyway. So no apology needed!! I agree with the rest, you're going to be busier now, lol. Have fun!
