Yesterday while I was at work, Jon called me to let me know Logan had taken another record number of steps - this time twenty!! Jon was a proud papa of course, and also wanted to gloat a bit that our little guy was doing all this walking for Daddy but would have none of it with Mom. *sigh*

What's more, when I got home from work - Jon reported that shortly after that record 20 steps, Logan did another big walking session - this time taking TWENTY FOUR steps, all the way from the front door to the middle of our living room (so, spanning almost 2 rooms!). Amazing stuff. :)

Still, on average, he probably only takes about 3-4 steps at any one time and prefers to crawl when he wants to get somewhere quickly. But, we've noticed he's taking more and more steps on his own to get from one object to another (or one person to another) in the room. It's fun watching him get better balanced, coordinated and figure it all out!

As you probably noticed from my previous post - we spent New Year's Day freezing our butts off at Marine World (I packed more than enough to keep Logan toasty warm, but forgot my own jacket in the process! Aiiieee!!). We went with the Chouns and Jodoins and had a lot of fun watching dolphins, elephants and stuffing our mouths full of kettle corn (not surprising, a food that Logan couldn't get enough of). Unfortunately, half of the park was closed because of the holiday season, but that didn't stop us from walking all over the place and even taking the kiddos down the snow hill on sleds! :)

We all upgraded our tickets for season passes, in the hopes that we'll visit again when the weather is MUCH warmer out. I took a number of pics, but will have to post those sometime later when we get our DSL back up and running (and I can login from my own computer rather than stealing a few precious minutes from Jon's work laptop).

After such a long day, Logan passed out pretty quickly when we got home. So, instead of meeting my family for dinner, we had my parents and Kai over for take-out at our house instead, to celebrate my Dad's birthday. We had a wonderful meal and a nice time visiting before everyone headed home to crash and get ready for work the next day.

Happy Birthday once more Zabuton!
