Upright

videoI'm not really sure when this new stage actually began! At Christmas time, we would find him standing on his own and walking around furniture. Then one day a few weeks ago, he started taking steps. He still has a cute little walk, a little bit of resemblance to a drunk. Sometimes I turn around and freak out that he is walking to me (he has mastered holding on to my leg for a very long time), but it still surprises me. I am sad that he is becoming more like a toddler and that shoes are no longer just a decoration. I'm not sure why being upright just makes him seem older. I do look forward to him chasing his brother in the yard, running after a ball, and walking beside me holding my hand. The first year of life is quite amazing! Not only is he learning to walk, but also busting out some teeth, and fighting a cold.
