These boots are made for walking ...

Now that Karoline has her own boots she feels the need to walk! Well, truth be told she is more interested in putting the boots in her mouth than anything else. Today when she had them on and tried to crawl she became so frustrated that it was all she could do to get those things off her feet. However, she will wear them and they do keep her feet nice and toasty.

This evening I set Karoline down in our living room and went to the kitchen to get some water. I saw her pull herself up on the ottoman, I turned around to grab my water bottle, turned back around and she was at the couch. I couldn't believe it! So, I quickly grabbed my phone and had her reenact her first steps! She did a great job and was so proud of herself. Earlier tonight when we were using FaceTime so she could see her nana (who she recognized right away and wanted to get to as fast as she could) Karoline stood all by herself for about ten seconds. I sound like a broken record but her physical ability sure is astounding to me!

Today we went and looked at homes that were available to rent in our area. One was the perfect house in the perfect location and was a great price. The sign on the development said a 55+ community. We are just as calm and quiet as a 55 year old couple, I wonder if they would take that into consideration. The other home was very large house and was $2,600/month to rent. I do believe the people trying to rent that house ended up in over their heads and they must be eating some funny mushrooms if they think they are going to be able to rent their home for that much! Well, maybe someone will rent it but I it won't be us. We are hoping to buy a home of our own. Our goal is to eventually build a house. Tim has such a talent when it comes to using his hands and I know the house would he would build would be absolutely wonderful. Building our home will happen but for the time being it seems buying a preexisting home is more likely. We are working with a great real-estate/financial team and we are praying that everything will work out. The best party is, we know it will. We have faith and know we will end up exactly where we are supposed to be.
