Josh Walks. Or So I Heard.

Once again, it's been way too long since I've posted updates of the boys' antics on this blog. Truth be told, I am so lazy that I have abandoned blogging for greener pastures where my musings are limited to 140 characters or less (namely, Facebook and Twitter). My name is mud all over the blogosphere, including Deep South Moms, where I'm so delinquent in posting that I'll probably be evicted from the site sometime this week, and Baby Bunching, where everything I write lately is uninspired and crappy. I am, however, excited to attend a blogging conference in a few weeks, which I hope will fuel a burst of creativity and reverse my tendency to conduct all communication in the form of perfunctory status updates.

The erosion of my writing skills aside, one of the main reasons I started this blog was to capture the milestones that are so glaringly absent in the baby books of my second and third children (and really, the first after about the age of 9 months). So today's milestone of the day is (drum roll, please).....

Joshie took his first steps!

I would tell you exactly how it went down, but I can't. Because I didn't see it. Yes, the sole living witness to Josh's tentative foray into the big boy world is his brother Drew. What kills me is that I was literally sitting across the table from Drew, right in the same room when it happened, but the dining room table was blocking my view of the Caboose. Who walked for Drew, but refused to walk for me a few minutes later. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

See how much more interesting and succinct the Facebook version of this story is?

Cara cannot believe that Drew just saw Josh take his first steps and I missed it!!!"
