and just like that…

…The baby started walking. He took one step back on June 27th. A nice way to celebrate his referral anniversary I thought. Actually, I’m pretty sure he didn’t realize what he was doing and once he realized it he sat down and started crawling as fast as he could. And he kept crawling until three days ago when he decided to take a few more. Then two days ago he took about ten. And then yesterday, well yesterday I looked over and the boy just stood up and walked across the living room. Like it was no big thing. Like he could do it all along but had suddenly decided it was time. I love this kid.

{{Got to love that smile.  He knows he’s good.  It was pretty cute how proud he got later on in the evening showing off for Papa and Gigi on Sk*pe.}}

{{I love how he looks up at me like “check this out mom, I’m rocking this if you hadn’t noticed.”


He’s been walking in circles (literally) all day now. It’s pretty fun to watch how excited he gets when he realizes what he’s doing. It’s also pretty funny how excited N and I get watching him.  It’s amusing, this celebrating of mostly ordinary movement. Babies are good for that I think, at making us take the ordinary and turning it into something celebration-worthy.

And we’re rocking the celebrating around here.

  1. I can’t help but smile when I see his pictures. You have one cute little dude there. Now the excitement will really begin and silence will mean trouble!! 🙂

  2. I just saw this for the first time, and am grinning from ear to ear too. He is absolutely bursting with the new joy of walking. Very cool!
