C-bug takes steps in public! That's right folks, our 14-month-old has FINALLY decided to start walking. For a while he would only walk when he thought no one was looking, but now he is very proud of himself. He giggles and chatters while he walks just to be sure that the world KNOWS just how amazing he is. He cracks me up! Check out my facebook for a link to some stinkin' cute video footage.
In other important news, KJ has a new knock knock joke (that he made up)...
BATS ARE GOING TO EAT YOU UP
Where does he come up with this stuff? If your child is in his class at church, and your child happens to be having nightmares about bats, I apologize! He's kind of into bats right now and I have NO IDEA where it comes from. GROSS.
I know, right? Serious news around the Lewis house. Aren't you glad you took time to read this one?

1) Never say "Aren't you amazed at how great our kids are? So flexible, so laid back, we are so blessed" because you can guarantee that approximately 46 seconds after you utter those words, a complete and total melt-down will occur
2) Never say "Can you believe we are making such great time? We are right on schedule. I'm so impressed with us" because you can guarantee that at the next major city there will be a huge accident, shutting down the two major interstates and adding 2 hours to your trip.
3) Never say "Well, if we had to get stuck in traffic at least we are amazing navigators and found this incredible detour" because you can guarantee that your incredible detour road will merely cross over the interstate you were trying to get back to and will have exactly ZERO access to such interstate...adding yet another 30 minutes to your trip.
4) Never say "I'm positive we can make it 30 more minutes until the next town before we get gas. The car would have to be leaking gas to finish a 1/4 tank before then" because you can guarantee that the next time you stop you will have a scare where someone tells you that you car actually IS leaking gas (check out Tara's blog for an amazing indicator of the IQ levels we experienced at one McDonald's).
Yep, that about sums it up. We spent the rest of the drive just shaking our heads and saying "don't say it, just DON'T SAY IT".
Tara has some adorable pictures of our munchkins on the trip on her blog as well. Too bad we don't have a video documentary of the actual car time. It was AMAZING.
Thanks again, Tara. It was a blast!!

One of my favorite things that he taught KJ, is a little prayer that RRL learned at a youth conference. KJ does it every night and is now teaching it to Cbug. I thought some of you might like to teach it to your kids, too, so my lovely assistant (I mean, handsome) agreed to pose for a few demonstrative photos.
The prayers says...
"God be in my mind, and in my thinking"
"God be in my eyes, and in my seeing"
(while covering your eyes)
"God be in my ears, and in my hearing"
(while covering your ears)
"God be in my mouth, and in my speaking"
(while covering your mouth)
"God be in my life, and in my living"
(while pointing to your suspender straps)
