Brian and his family planned a surprise 60th party for his mother this past weekend on Saturday night. We told her we were coming home for her birthday and would be taking her out to dinner (just the 4 of us) to a steak restaurant nearby. Little did she know that there would be 15 of us celebrating her birthday in a private room at the steakhouse. We had arranged for babysitting for the boys and even planned a "fake" party for Sunday of our weekend in town.

Eric turned 11 months old this week! I think this frog picture may just be my favorite. He was so smiley and cooperative - hamming it up for the camera. Eric was at the doctor this week for a sick visit - first ear infection and first dose of antibiotics at 11 months, which is pretty good as far as I'm concerned. We hadn't been for a sick visit since October so I can't complain at all. He got weighed with his clothes on and was up to 19 lbs and 23rd percentile. His weight was a little overinflated but I was thrilled. Eric is taking lots of steps now - he has probably connected 8 steps or more. I wouldn't say that he's walking yet because he still choose crawling over walking but I think we are really close. He loves to get himself to standing without holding onto anything and stand there practicing his balance. He is also getting to be more talkative. He will say "uh oh", "ball" and "choo choo". He also will imitate the sneezing sound if we do it. Overall, he continues to be happy and easy-going. I can't believe this is almost our last frog picture and that my little baby will be 1 next month!

Eric took his first official steps on Saturday, February 2nd at 10.5 months old. As a contrast, Evan was not even able to pull himself up to standing at this age. While we've got a little bit of time yet before he's off and walking, I'm afraid that time is going to go faster than I would like!
The rest of the weekend was devoted to the Superbowl. Brian has always been a 49ers fan and was thrilled to see them play in the Superbowl. The whole family dressed in red to celebrate:
