So I guess Stephen just needed another small person to chase around to make him want to walk more! We had another playdate today with Stephen's buddy, Alexander, and Stephen took off chasing after him (walking) a few times with no prompting. Alexander was walking behind a push-toy, and Stephen just decided to "get him!" I had to stop him each time, though, because I was afraid that they would get hurt if they fell - Stephen is about 6 inches taller, and 10 lbs heavier than Alexander, and I didn't want him to get hurt!
Stephen enjoyed looking out their back door, watching the two dogs run around. It was a nice day, but really windy, so we weren't able to spend too much time outside today.
Tomorrow (Valentine's Day), we are planning on going to lunch at Steak N' Shake. All three of us like eating there, and we don't go too often, because it's a 30 minute drive. Other than that, we don't have much planned for the weekend. We ARE going to work on some babyproofing projects in Stephen's room, though, because I discovered that he is less than an inch from outgrowing his crib, so if Stephen is going to be in a toddler bed in a couple of months, we need to minimize the amount of mischief he can get into in his room!
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!!
