It Has Been A LONG TIME!!!

Indeed it has been longer than I would want it to be. There have been a few changes in the Cotter house in the past month. We are very excited for the holidays, and can't wait to share our photos of our little man throughout the next few weeks.

Our biggest change was another move. There were some unforeseen circumstances that came up and in a matter of a week we have moved just down the road into one of our fire chief’s condos. We are hoping in the next few months Jeff can start some college classes for Criminal Justice. Another change has been with our little one himself, HE IS WALKING. He started on in 13 month "birthday" and has been cruising along since.

We have already passed by Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be here soon. It difficult to believe that at this time last year we were still without sleep most nights. Christopher has, for the most part, conquered his sleeping schedule. He is even generous when he wakes up early, letting mommy and daddy continue to sleep while he plays in his crib. Decorations are still in their boxes, at least until Wednesday. I'm very proud of myself for waiting, considering last year they were up before Thanksgiving.

I also can't wait to visit with my family in Ohio in a few weeks. There are still a few of them who have not met Christopher; we are hoping that we can change this. We are also anxious to see snow!!! Even if it only snows for 30 minutes while we are home, that would be enough.

Below are two videos, one of Christopher walking for the first time, and the other of us playing peek-a-boo the other night while unpacking.
