Titus finally got up enough courage to stand on his own today, and he took several steps to walk to me. I bribed him with a goldfish cracker!! :) He is a very cautious little boy and would always just sit down whenever Tim or I let go of his hand. While it is still not his preferred mode of transportation, today he finally walked!!! :)

We were very glad we were able to go hear Bro. Schaap preach on Monday & Tuesday at Bro. Jon Shook's church in Asheboro. The message Monday was very humbling and challenging! We stayed overnight at an area hotel so that we could be there for the service and meal at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Mom and Dad and Keri also came - what a wonderful surprise!! We even talked them into coming back to Durham with us Tuesday afternoon. I had to be back for my piano recital. They stayed overnight with us - just long enough to get in a good game of Dutch Blitz and Bojangle's this morning. YUM!
** It was very late and we had to wait quite a while to get to speak with Dr. Schaap. Needless to say, Titus was worn out!!

It always seems as if Titus takes longer to learn the stuff I'm actually trying to teach him. It took him forever to finally clap his hands and give kisses. He still won't wave bye on a regular basis and we are now struggling to differentiate between "nose" & "mouth." However, I was absolutely amazed when I turned around from cleaning the kitchen to see Titus trying to plug in the vacuum cleaner cord!! Fortunately I had put the cover back on the outlet!! I guess kids really do learn more just by watching EVERYTHING we do than by what we try to tell them!! LESSON LEARNED!
I took the next picture because this is the messiest Titus had been while eating his supper. Tim was working in the yard and I was working in the house, so I let Titus feed himself his ravioli. He did a pretty good job!!
After this mess he was ready for a bath, so I left him momentarily to run his bath water and THIS is what I came back to!! He had sooo much fun and was just laughing at himself. Being a mom is the BEST in the world!
