Zach is "walking" all by himself!! He takes a few steps and then usually gives up and crawls. I just know that by Christmas he will be walking all over the place!

Zach can say Daddy! It's the cutest thing EVER! He sarted clearly saying it last night and then this morning he was in his crib entertaining himself while I was getting ready and he said it again!

I still think his first word was Ma. He only says it when he is crying and he wants me. It comes out like "Mmmmmmaaaaaaaa", hey I'll take it! Clearly he is calling for me!

Wow, so much has happened in the last few months. Life has just been nuts! I'm working full time at the church and I really enjoy it. I lead the youth group on Wednesday nights and I have a great group of kids. Teaching dance is keeping me SOOOO busy. Right now I'm teaching Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday mornings. When do I have time to be a mommy??? Tuesdays I'm off from the church so I take full advantage of the time I get to spend with Zach on Tuesdays.

I recently judged a dance competition...boy we're not in MN anymore that is for sure! Things are just so different down here with high school dance team. We're about 10 years behind MN in terms of dance team. I'm about ready to start a new Dance Association including a Judges Association and become the next Leslie Swiggum (anyone in the dance world up in MN will know who she is). Yeah, I'll do that in my free time.

We're coming home for Thanksgiving! Very much looking forward to spending a few days with Grandma Jan and Grandpa. Hopefully we can see our friends while we're in town!!
