Last night we headed over to Mark and Kim’s for a family dinner and to watch Ryan in his school play. The last time we were there was end of August/early September for Nikki’s birthday and we basically had to chase Carter around to prevent him from wrecking their house. Last night when we got there, Nikki took his hand and off they went, exploring the house and playing with toys. Jeremy and I could actually both sit down and be social with everyone and not have to worry about what he was doing or getting into.
This was the first time since he was mobile, awake, and in a non-babyproofed location where one of us didn’t have to constantly watch him like a hawk. And OMG – it was a HUGE MILESTONE!
