Another big week!

Samuel learned to ride a bike with pedals in about 20 minutes yesterday! He was intensely proud of himself as were the rest of us. We all credit his balance bike for making the transition so smooth and quick. With his balance already established, it was super simple for him to learn to pedal without training wheels! SO so awesome.

Louie has been signing fan, milk, and all done, but just yesterday with some practice (and yogurt he really wanted) he picked up the sign for more! It was really quick, which was very cool. He is a dancing fool too- loves to rock out while sitting and standing!

Sabrina is really enjoying the chemistry and art sets she received for Christmas. My heart is full when I watch her conducting the experiments and learning cool facts about sugar versus salt! She finished Charlotte's Web yesterday. Philip bought her the movie so that is up next as a promise from him.

Louie and his new (old) toy

Sabrina got this walker, that turns into a car, for Christmas- her very first Christmas. Now Louie is using it as Sam did before him. Toy on it's third round over eight years? That's a pretty good toy. I forgot when milestone mentioned in yesterday's post – Louie is also starting to dance. He has the typical Johnson moves and it's adorable.

Louie turning 1

This week was a big one for Louie- he turns one on Monday, Thursday is Thanksgiving, and he started taking his first steps.  He also very cutely has began to say 'mama'! 

Last weekend we had his first camping trip. We went to McKinney Falls. It was cold, but we had a cabin in a space heater. We all came back smelling like campfire. It was great!
