|6 months old - happy baby!|
Walker was an absolutely wonderful baby! He slept through the night at 7-8 weeks, was happy and content regardless of not having a rigid nap schedule (which was hard to do with carpools and big kid schedules). He was a great eater at a young age, bypassing most baby food and going straight to table food. He never took a pacifier, and easily transferred to sippy cups by age one! He was a dream, right?!

In fact, my mental well-being is much healthier now that I have all of my mornings to myself to exercise, clean, run errands and work. I have found that I can not leave Walker alone for more than a minute before he finds trouble! His latest was something that occurred in less than 5 minutes. I left him sitting at the breakfast counter (the big kids had just left for school), so I could go put my hair up and brush my teeth. I came out to find him drawing circles with a black sharpie on my sofa!!!!! I went completely crazy, screaming and twirling around in a rage. During my spinning, I noticed his artwork on 3 other chairs in my living room, in addition to a stool and several areas on the hardwood floors and a glasstop table. Steve was out of town, but that didn't stop me from calling him in hysterics asking for help. Minutes later I got several text messages with youtube videos on how to remove the stains from him. I immediately started cleaning, and wasn't having much luck, so I took pictures and posted them to Facebook, asking for help. During this whole period (about 45 minutes), Walker didn't move from where I put him during my freak-out episode. He just stared at me, as if he didn't know me.
