Their is something so amazing about your child taking her 1st steps. From that first breath of life, to rolling over, to sitting up, to scooting around the room and on furniture but their is something so magical about those tiny toes grazing the floor. Well we are please to announce for the past 3 nights Mallory has taken 4 steps each night. Her little wiggly diaper butt standing in front of me, taking steps like's she's known how to her entire life. It's just amazing, gut wrenching amazing.
These past few weeks we've been really getting into the "grove" of things, between making beds, daily chores, and getting our house to the house that we want has been amazingly motivating. Our living room is looking spectacular, I started it while we were waiting the 6 weeks between Mal's last round of chemotherapy and her scans. Well I neglected one wall and some touch ups at the ceiling, well I FINALLY finished! I got a bunch of pictures hung on the wall, we finally bought a new entertainment center to replace our chinsy one we've had for 7 years, which held a TV it just wasn't in the greatest condition anymore. Now I need to update the pictures and it will officially feel like "home". Our Bathroom was finished right before our Baby Party with Mallory and that just turned out incredible, and we have an extra deep bathtub which is amazing. I soaked a TON while I was pregnant with Mal (with Jillian I was stuck using a shower so the bath was a nice addition). Our Kitchen is officially done being painted, now I just have to transform these thrift store frames into something magical. The theme for the house is modern with a kid twist, so we have a lot of bright fun colors but they all pull together to make it look not like we live in crayon town :-p. I can't wait to finish (although I doubt it will ever be truly finished but hey I am ok with that)
We've got scans in about 2 weeks for Mallory, so please send out some prayers for her. Her numbers where obviously a little on the high side this past time and we just need all the prayers we can get.
