Lauren is finally walking!!!! I would've posted some pictures of the event, but I can't get them to dowload to my in-laws' computer for some reason. But here's how it happened:
We were playing downstairs and she was taking a couple of steps here and there, which for her is good, because Lauren really has to be in the mood to walk, and she looked at me and said "I want to go see Daisy". She walked across the family room, and down the hall - only falling down once. My jaw just dropped! That little stinker could walk all this time, she was just deciding that she didn't want to yet. She crawled up the stairs and said to me "I walk!!", then walked across the living room, through the kitchen to the window to see the dog. And I, being pregnant and emotional, just started bawling. I seriously could not believe it! I've been so worried that she wouldn't walk before the baby came, and then what was I going to do, I can't carry around 2 kids all the time - especially a 2 year old. When we went to bed that night, I told Bryan that I was worried she was going to wake up the next morning and not want to anymore, because anyone who knows my kid knows that she's just about the most stubborn, hard-headed kid on the planet, and if she doesn't want to do something, she's not going to do it. But, of course, she hasn't stopped and just wants to run - yes, not walk, run - everywhere. I love it!!!

Hi Kierst- Heather here. So let me first say that that is SO awesome that you have the right stuff on your play list. That made me laugh my head off. Thats great that your girl is walking, I was so hoping that my boy would be potty trained before his brother came-no go. We are buying diapers like every other day. fun fun.
