Uh Oh!

He's getting bigger. There is no two ways about it. But even with this knowledge, I wasn't really ready for what happened yesterday. I was sure I was safe for a little while longer. I was pretty sure that I had at least one more month before my baby started walking. He has been taking a step here and a step there. One step usual led to one SPLAT on his diapered bum. However, yesterday, my girls decided to test his walking skills. I was pretty sure he might take 1 or 2 steps. I was not prepared for the 6 or 7 that he consistently took. I grabbed the camera. Here are some of his first steps.





And just one outtake. Love the look on his face as he starts to fall. He wasn't crying--just realizing that he is on the way down!


I am guessing that I might not have one more month. Especially, since his sisters want to practice with him all the time now.

Since I don't own and have never owned a video camera of any kind, I only have my camera to capture moments like these. To my husband's dismay, the camera lives on the counter. He tries to put it away but it is back out before he gets home.

Tara--I know you have your hand full with Tyler, but I foresee some Trouble (notice the capital T) with my boy, too. He is extremely curious.

He is so adorable! And so are your girls, as a matter of fact.

It's always bittersweet to see your baby walking. I sure do miss those days, though. I'll take a new walker over a soon-to-be junior high kid any day. Sigh.
