Grammy and Aunt Danielle came over for an afternoon visit and Luke took his first steps! It was so exciting, but he hasn't really done it again since then. He can stand alone very well, but he is afraid of falling, so he holds out his hands for me before he'll take another step. The same thing happened with Nolan, so it'll probably be another couple of weeks before he gets more daring & just starts going.
Nolan really gained his confidence on Friday. As soon as Justin left, Nolan just let go of the couch and began walking across the living room. He hasn't stopped since - except when he wants to get somewhere really fast - then he crawls! If Luke has a toy that he wants, Nolan will crawl over and attack his brother for it.
On Friday night, Grammy met the boys and I for dinner at a diner. We figured that diners are noisy places, so we didn't need to worry about the boys being a little loud. I don't know about moms of singletons, but whenever we go somewhere to eat, the boys draw a crowd. At one point, there were 4 waitresses standing around our table asking questions and showing me cell phone pictures of their little ones. After they left, then the people sitting at surrounding tables began with their questions and love for the boys. Luke and Nolan eat it up!! They were all smiles. I love talking to new people so I don't really mind the questions unless they get a little too personal or rude (like at the mall last week when a woman walked over to the stroller, stared at the boys and announced loudly, "they aren't identical." No kidding lady, don't you think I know that? She then stared some more and walked away. Weirdo.).

Helping Mommy make breakfast (Since daddy wasn't around, I took lots of cell phone pics so I could forward them!)The boys and I went to a friend's graduation party. There were loads of children there for them to play with which was a good thing because they all kept themselves entertained. Nolan took a liking to 4 year old, Eva. He stared up at her and followed her all over the living room. Luke found a mirror that enjoyed talking to!
We took the boys over to Mom Mom & Poppy's house so that I could go to David's Bridal to order my bridesmaid dress for Uncle Pat & Aunt Giustina's wedding. Luke & Nolan got some loving and I got a purdy dress! Chica & I had a little lunch, picked up the boys and went to Grammy's house for dinner.
