I never, ever thought that learning to walk was such a big deal until I had my own kiddo. I mean, they come out of you so completely helpless, and about a year later, they get up on their feet in the middle of the room and just start walking (okay, after cruising for about 5 months, but still!). Last Sunday John took his first steps, and by the end of the night had made it to 14 consecutive steps across the room. He is my super cautious boy, and didn’t really walk much after that, until today. I put a new pair of shoes on him, and he quickly learned to pick his feet up higher. When we were outside on our deck, he was walking all over the place. JUST SO CUTE!
Here is a video from last Sunday morning:
