A New Year

So... um, Shepherd's walking (?!?!?!). Maybe not completely across the room, but he can stand freely and walk about 3 feet from one chair to another. This has only happened since we got back from visiting family and every day he gets exponentially better at it. It's amazing to watch him gain more confidence with each and every step. He's growing up SO fast, I can't believe it.

Last night, we rung in the New Year with some wonderful fondue and playing games. Around 11 we turned on Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve.... it was so sad to see Dick Clark struggle to form his words, but at the same time I have to applaud his courage. After a while of that, we switched it to PBS and watched Garrison Keelor's show with Emmylou Harris playing (which, you gotta love you some Emmylou Harris!). Finally, we watched the ball drop and sat around talking about all the excitement 2007 holds. It's always so refreshing to have a new start...

Happy New Year to Everyone of you!!!!
