Tobin's first birthday!!!

It was a fun party. Tobin was a little sick during his birthday party so he doesnt look like he enjoyed his party much--i now realize that he didnt smile in any of his pictures. I'm sure he was just overwhelmed with all the people and kids "helping" him open his presents. He made out like a bandit with all the presenst everyone gave him and loves playing with his toys. The cookie monster cake and balloons were a hit with the kids (of course) and it was great having everyone cram into our small casa for a little celebration! We even got Grannie, Grandpa, and Great Grannie to come in from California for the party (well, to visit family too i guess).

Jonah's first day of Preschool !

Jonah started preschool today. The bus picked him up at 9am, and he happily walked over to the bus (with help from Chris, one of the bus aid's), smiled at the driver (Dave), and walked on. He was ready to go. No tears, no reluctance, just curiosity and content. Here are some pictures of the "event". He didnt smile for the pictures (dang-it!), but he was happy. When Jonah was dropped back off at home, he walked off of the bus with a huge satisfying smile on his face and said goodbye to Dave and Chris. It was so cute, i wish i took a picture of it. Of course i didnt have my camera with me then.

Eating Breakfast, getting dressed, and watching cartoons while waiting for the bus.

OF course he looked at the camera after i took the picture. Oh well, he's still cute.

Tobin's walking!!

A few days ago Tobin took his first few steps. He took about 3 steps before he fell. He is now up to 10 steps without falling. He's been doing it all on his own. Well, the first time Jake helped "coach" him through it. But since then, he has been walking all by himself. He loves when you clap and cheer him on after he takes a little stroll. It is so cute.

On a side note, as many of you know, our external harddrive fell (well, Tobin knocked it over) and the motor broke. We are unable to access any of the information on our harddrive. This really sucks because it holds each and every picture we have taken since we were married. We are lucky that most of hte pictures have been printed and burned onto disks. But we dont have pictures from the last several months. It will cost $900 to recover the data and we just happen to not have $900 in our "money to repair things our kids break" account. So.....if anyone has pictures they want to donate to us, that would be awesome!. Just let me know!
