He Finally Did it!

Over the past few days the munchkin has taken a tentative step here and there. Well, last night he was able to put several of them together and took what we consider to be his first steps.  Yay!!!!!

I've been having a countdown for him since he needs to be walking before his 18 month appt.  So he was down to 34 days yesterday.  I doubt he was feeling the pressure from me, but whatever it was, he did it!

I tried to get a video of it, but the best one I got was this one and J's head is in the way of his actual steps at the end. I'm sure I will get some this weekend as long as he gives us a repeat performance.

I sat on the ground with his while he was standing by the chaise and he took 5 or 6 steps to get to me and collapse into my lap. My face hurt from smiling so hard.

So proud of my little munchkin!!


  1. Yay!!!

    Get your running shoes ready to go momma! It's a whole new ballgame!

  2. Way to go Andrew!!! And yes it is completely different once they start walking, then running.

  3. How exciting:) Now you're in for it! My son walked so early( 8 mos) that I felt like I lost my baby early on. Enjoy him before you can no longer catch him!

    1. That's one reason I didn't mind that he was a late walker, I felt like I had my baby longer.
