And...We're OFF!

 
 
It's offical...Little Man is WALKING!  On his own, without holding onto anything, and without our urging. I just happened to catch the first step on camera - when am I not taking pictures of him - and it was sooo exciting! 
 
Step One:  Balance
 
                                                           Step Two:  Go Go Go!
At first it was just one step at a time and then back down, back up and balance.  (And of course lots of walking around the furniture and with his walker.)  Last week were the first steps (Nov. 8th) but this week he's just taken off. Today after breakfast we did a little video of him showing his stuff but even by the end of the day he'd improved so much from this morning.  He spent more time on his feet than on his hands and knees and often as I was standing cooking or folding laundry, he would walk around and around my legs like my little electron.  It is endearing and SO fun to see him progress into a little person.

We're so proud of you Little Love Bug!!
