The first time I called 911

We were waiting for the bus that takes Sean to camp this morning on the front porch. J.D and Katy were playing and J.D. fell down so I went to pick him up and Katy spit up just a little bit because she thought it was her fault and was upset. While I was attending to them I looked around and Sean who had been standing right next to the front porch was gone. I took J.D. and Katy inside and began to look for Sean. I looked and looked and screamed and screamed until my throat hurt. The bus came and the bus driver helped me look. After several minutes I told the bus aide to call 911. I was so scared I can't put it into words adequately. The only other time I was more scared in my whole life was when Katy turned blue and went limp. I picked up the phone and dialed William because I know he can calm me like no other and I needed to remain calm. Before he could answer I heard Sean's voice and looked down, he had crawled under the house again! I just dropped the phone and went to tearing the siding off the front of the house to get him out. William will fix it today, no excuses!!! William was still on the line when I finally realized that I had not hung up the phone before I dropped it. He was so scared just trying to figure out what was going on. I told him what happened and of course he was relieved that Sean was fine. The bus driver and I cleaned Sean up and he got on the bus. It has been an hour and a half and I am still shaky.

Katy is also taking steps!

Katy is just blossoming more everyday! Her daddy was holding her and stood her up on the floor facing the coffee table in the living room about 2 steps away. He let her go and she took 2 steps and we cheered her on. She did this several times cause she LOVED the applause we gave her. I guess she is competitive and couldn't let her little brother show her up.

J.D. is taking steps

I noticed the other day that J.D. was standing unassisted. I clapped my hands and he was so proud of himself. Katy saw him doing it and how much attention he was getting and tried to do it herself, but she just isn't quite ready yet. They are constantly competing for my attention and have found another way to grab mommy's attention. Right now they are fighting over my keys. Well last night J.D. was standing in the living room and he just lunged forward and took 2 steps to get to me. I almost cried to see him make such a wonderful milestone.
