John David is Walking!


It's official, John David can walk by himself! It has been fun to watch his balance and coordination improve over the past few weeks as he has gone from taking a few steps ever so often to just letting go and taking off. The first day he decided to let go he kept making himself fall down because he got so excited that he was actually walking that it threw off his balance. Other times he fell because he was clapping for himself so much that he couldn't keep his coordination up. He's still a bit wobbly but I'm sure that will improve over the next few days as he continues to practice his new skill. Now if I can just teach him that he still has to back down the steps to our sunken den, we'll hopefully avoid a few busted lips.

Allison! I'm so glad to hear from you! What a beautiful baby boy you have! Aren't boys so much fun? Mine will be 2 in Jan. and I'm loving being a mommy- (even though I enjoy mother's morning out on Wednesdays also).
