Christmas Day 2013

 We opened our stockings and a few gifts in the morning, then we headed off to church.
 We spent the rest of the day at Bob's house with Bob, Steve, Stephanie, Ethan, Garret, Stephen, and a family friend, Caytie.  It was a lovely and relaxing day!  Oh!  And Micah walked for the first time!  He took up to five solo steps with the whole Gorham family as an audience.  Way to go, Micah!

Decorating the tree

Tried to get a cute Christmas PJ picture.  This was the best I could get.

Levi loves to "play" the instrument ornaments on Great Grannie's tree.

Micah's current favorite instrument: the guiro

There's my crawler!


Snow day!

What is this white stuff in my hand?

Snowballs are fun!

Eleven Months Old

Micah is eleven months old now.  I can hardly believe it!  The last couple of days have been busy.  He has been getting faster and faster at cruising around the house, holding onto furniture.  He is also speedy at walking when he holds onto my hands.  He's even gaining confidence and only holding one hand.  We think he'll be walking soon!  Our big surprise happened on Tuesday when . . . he began crawling!  Micah has always hated being on his tummy or all fours, so we thought for sure that he would skip crawling altogether--like his older brother.  But I guess he couldn't wait to get moving on his own!  Yay, Micah!  And today I was almost as excited because he had his first three-hour nap ever.  Apparently all that learning and growing tired him out.
Micah didn't appreciate having to sit in this chair, so I couldn't get a smile out of him.

Fun in the music room!
