Walking on Sunshine!



So much can be learned from this video:
1. Always remember to take a moment to congratulate yourself on a job well done.
2. No matter how many times you tumble, get up and try again.
3. Certain facial expressions really do help concentration (see the last strut).
4. Take time to show special people in your life that you love them, even when working on very important, life-changing business.
5. Sometimes the first step is the hardest.

My Jude is so wise...

I'm working on a long post because today marks such a special day in our lives...I want it to be right (which it never will be) so it might take a couple of days.

Geeze, I didn't check for what seemed like a day and SO MUCH happened! My internet at work is too slow to watch, I can't wait to get home to see. He is very smart with the ball hat. He doesn't need you to dress him anymore, he seems to be accessorizing just fine.
