All About Chance: Milestones

If you read my last post, you know that I'm trying to sleep more. As it turns out, sleep takes time. Who knew? If I sleep, it seems something's gotta give, and since I won't let it be my boys, I guess it's gonna be this space from time to time. Ideas and words and clever (to me, anyway) turns of phrase always dance in my mind and I love to have this outlet for them but finding the time to sit down and type, especially on my laptop with its battery that won't hold a charge, an "a" key that sticks, and a Max who gets a real kick out of closing anything, is really darn hard (nice run-on sentence, Amy). I think I need Dragon, darn it! Or a an assistant. Hmmm...there's a thought.

Ok, excuses made, it's time for my periodic post about...drum roll boy, Chance.


Fast. It's happening in flash. 

First, the roll-over. Then the crawl, straight and fast, and over, under or through everything in sight.

Next, the sit.

Perfect posture.

And finally, the stand. Now is preferred resting position.

Next will be the walk, definitely before summer. Looks like that fenced-in park down the road will be a favorite hang-out in warm weather.

And the best part, Max is gaining a playmate.

Oh, wait. The teeth. Chewing, drooling, whining. Thanks goodness for tiny thumbs.

That's my boy, Chance.


  1. Love these pictures!! So fun to see their personalities through the pics.

    1. One of my favorite things. And to see Chance imitate some of the quirky things that Max does--like his fake laugh--awesome!

  2. This makes me yearn for a 2nd boy even more! So adorbs!

    1. As much as I'd love to have a little girl in the future, there's something to be said for boys. A lot less teenage drama!

  3. What sweet, sweet boys!! Just found you & am excited to follow along!!

    1. Ashley, welcome! I'm so happy to have you! I'm on my way over to see you now. :)
