we have a walker!

For weeks I have been insisting to our friends and family {and anyone who will listen} that my ten-month-old Cormac is nearly walking.  Then the little guy would take a few over-zealous steps and tumble to the ground rather unimpressively when I would try to prove this statement.  Or worse, slump to the ground in a fit of tears and refuse to show his new moves at all.

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.



Wow -- look at the 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.

  4. Yay, Baby Mac!!!! :) Hahaha. Love those facial expressions.

    My Mack will hold onto a walker and take a few steps, but I am guessing another month or two for him! Heck, he didn't crawl til 10.5 months! ;)
