All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

He fooled us!

And he is only 15 months old! We thought Joey would be walking by now, but noooooooo, decided that he wasn't going to walk, and let everyone carry him! And of course, we fell for it.

So these past 6 days, my Mom and family have been here, and it's been a miserable time. I am glad they came, but all Joey has done is cry. Has not been a good time for me. I am sure my Mom is glad to have left already. Last night my sister, Hilary and I were playing with the babies. Ella (brother's daughter) is 6 months old. Little cute chunk. We were acting like she was trying to beat up Joey, etc... and of course Joey is crying. Hilary picks him up, and cries more. I tell Hilary that I bet Joey would walk to just get away from her. She stands him up, and he walks. She grabs him again, and goes furthur back, and he walks. I then stand up, and she does it again, and I make him walk to me from the living room to kitchen, all the time as he is crying. Shawn gets home from work, and sees it. We call his mom to come over to see. It was so funny! Guess it was one of those moments where you had to be there.
