So as you can see, before Josiah is actually walking we are teaching him how to drive! Ha ha ha! And note that he also totes his own diaper bag around too...yeah right! Let's review again, why does Mommy have an aching back? Hmmm...a close to 23 pound baby, lugging all his garb and her garb all around Spokane. Oh yeah, that it is it! Incidentally, I have been going to the chiropractor for those of you concerned folk out there and am feeling much better now that I am doing the stretches he taught me each day and getting my back adjusted once a week.
OK...enough health rambling! So Josiah and I were waiting for Kim, Chris and Colton to meet us at the Fred Meyer so that we could go to Mercedes birthday party (a little girl he just met recently through Kim). He was bored in his carseat, so I let him play around with the wheel and buttons in the car. He figured out how to turn on the windshield wipers and had a grand time turning the radio on and off and I narrated his actions as he went along, which he loves. It was VERY unpopular to be put back in his seat when we had to go.
