OK, quick update. Noah is walking!!! Albeit only while pushing his little wagon, but he is doing that all on his own. Grace follows right behind him cheering and ready to catch him if he falls, which he does frequently as he giggles with glee to the point of collapse.
AND, Kai is now a yellow-belt in karate. He got up in front of everybody in the class by himself (he was the only one testing that day) and went through the punches and kicks and got his yellow belt. It was a last minute thing, the instructor told us he was ready and they could do it right then if he wanted to. He is the youngest by a few years in that group and I am just so proud of how brave he is. He feels pretty damn good about himself I can tell you. It was an awesome moment.
Pictures to follow. The stomach flu is back in Noah and, well, I just don't have anything nice to say about that!
