The Walker

another step closer to independence.
one small step for one small man.
going mobile.

We picked up a “little tikes walker” today for O and he was full steam ahead. Of course since he is only a bit past nine months he still needs some assistance but after he found his balance (or what would could pass for a drunken sailor’s balance) he was able to take a few giant steps on his own. Look for some video clips to come. You can’t help but see this as the first step to wanting the keys to the car. The grin that came across his face was wider than any one I have seen yet. He hasn’t quite figured out the crawl and we think he is going to skip right by that and go straight to walking... so the liberation he must have felt in taking those first steps was evident in that smile.
