A cute moment

In months past going out to eat could be quite embarrassing.

A long awaited update

And she’s walking…

Well this is a few weeks overdue but that is pretty much the story of my life these days. About 10 and 1/2 months Cailee really started taking a few steps unassisted. She did more and more over the next few days and now here we are at 11 months on the nose and she…
