Ridin' the Carousel

On Saturday we went to the mall and they have a really neat children's play center there. Justin and I took Anna and Justin on the carousel that they have there!

The song of our lives...

This song by Rob Thomas pretty much sums up how I feel about the situation with our girls...

Someday

You can go
You can start all over again
You can try to find a way to make another day go by
You can hide
Hold all your feelings inside
You can try to carry on when all you want to do is cry

[Chorus]
And maybe Someday
We'll figure all this out
Try to put an end to all our doubt
Try to find a way to make things better now and
Maybe someday we'll live our lives out loud
We'll be better off somehow
Someday

Now wait
And try to find another mistake
If you throw it all away then maybe you can change your mind
You can run, oh
And when everything is over and done
You can shine a little light on everything around you
Man it's good to be so warm

[Chorus]

And I don't want to wait
I just want to know
I just want to hear you tell me so
Give it to me straight
Tell it to me slow

Cause maybe someday
We'll figure all this out
We'll put an end to all our doubt
Try to find a way to just feel better now and
Maybe someday we'll live our lives out loud
We'll be better off somehow
Someday
Cause sometimes we don't really notice
Just how good it can get
So maybe we should start all over
Start all over again

Really cute videos of Anna!

Anna and her new walker!

Anna received her KidWalk Gait Trainer yesterday and we already LOVE it! Anna does SO well in it and has already begun to take steps on her own!!! Here is a video I took of her this morning! Before I got the video camera out, she took 10 STEPS ON HER OWN!!

(please pardon the bed head, pajamas, and strange background noises)

And here are some pictures I took of her in it yesterday!
