However, this weekend was a turning point.
He now can walk all the way across a room before collapsing into one of our embraces - or to the ground.
The lady at our church's playroom even confirmed, when I asked if he had "tried to walk" at all, that, yes, "He is a walker!"
Trying to catch this amazing feat on camera has been challenging, to say the least. He is less of a "walker," more like a "runner-then-tumbler" - moving too fast for me to ever hit "record" on time. I have about a million videos of him careening to the floor, rather than walking.
So here are some still shots. My only proof that, yes, we have a walker.
focus and sheer determination on that face.
I can't lie. Watching this boy develop and turn into a walking, talking 'human bean' has been the most incredible, fulfilling experience of my life. I'm sure all parents can relate...you feel like you are witnessing a miracle every day.
Oh, and he started picking his nose.
