Look Who's Walking Now!!!

(Insert Alleluia Chorus!!!)

Creed did it! He finally started walking! It only took him 15 freaking months, not to mention all his "friends"-(mostly girls) are walking...but he did it!
I know I haven't posted anything on him in a while, and I really dropped the ball when it came to his birthday... but I had a good excuse, I think. He was one sick little boy on his birthday- turns out he had Hand, Foot & Mouth disease! Poor little guy had sores all over his mouth and couldn't eat. So I was going to celebrate his birthday with my family in IF, when we went over for the 4th of July, but then we lost Mia, and poor little Creed got put on the back burner, and I just never got around to it. Sorry sweetheart! Believe me, I will more than make up for it when you turn two!

Some things about our little man:

- He is so dang serious! If you get him to laugh or smile at you, it's a miracle! This is his newest look... enough said!
- He likes to yell- a lot! But not necessarily in anger; when he's happy or excited, and when he's letting us know something important!

- At 12 months, he weighed 22.75 lbs. (50%)
- He was 30.25 in. long (67%)
- He loves to go up and down the stairs following us- Has recently learned to climb up on the furniture by himself!
- Loves to pound on the piano
- Creed LOVES to eat! He's our best eater by far! And speaking of eating... I promised I would post this- a video of Creed and our neighbor "Red"- he loves Creed, and Creed loves Red's beard!... We like to call this "Cotton Candy"

We love our little Creedo!!!

Cute! I love that you posted the video! I LOVE that little boy. He is seriously the cutest thing ever, and I love watching him. I just wish Katie loved me watching him as well, it would make it easier.

He is so stinkin cute!!!! And, that video is hilarious!

Chandler said...

SO CUTE! I love that he just keeps going back for the cotton candy like it's going to be edible the next time! So funny!
I love that Creed and Alice are little friends. They are so funny when they see each other at church. They want to be friends, they just don't know what to do about it. Oh, and Al is in the same serious face phase. They must be MFEO. ha!

Carlie, I tried to email you after you posted on my blog, but for some reason the email came back.
I hope you don't mind if I send you the message here!

Carlie, I snuck a peak at your blog and your family is beautiful!

I just read the comment you left and I'm so glad you did. I've met a lot of moms and families suffering losses in the last few weeks and I'm so glad to meet another mom with an LDS perspective.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of your sweet baby girl, Mia. It's absolutely heartbreaking to hear of other stories even though I'm grateful to know we're not alone in these experiences.

I'd love to keep in touch with you if you'd be interested. Every little bit of support has been a strength to me and I hope that I can do that for other mothers as well.

Thanks again for taking a leap of faith and introducing yourself, I'm so glad you did!
I'll keep your family in my prayers as well.

Something not covered is how incredibly cuddly our Creedo is. So fun to hold and snuggle his little body when he is beyond tired and just wants to be loved! What a muffin cutie he is!

What a cutie! All of my kids were a little bit late on the walking thing, but Sadie was the latest at about 17 1/2 months! So, see? Creeds totally fine! :) You're a cute mom. He's lucky to have you. Also, the cotton candy is hilarious!
