Mother of All Milestones

He did it!

He walked!

Ever since Baby entered his clumsy stage about a month ago, which culminated in his bleeding lip, he has been more cautious than he needs to be. We knew he would walk soon because he has been furniture walking for a few months and every once in awhile he would stand without support without realizing it. We knew it was just a matter of time before he got brave enough to get moving.

It was evident enough last night that Mommy and Daddy had the same fears tucked away in the back of their minds.

Would Baby take his first steps at daycare?

Would we miss this very important milestone?

Thankfully, we were both there to enjoy this memorable moment.

Daddy was working on our home computer and Mommy was busy trying to keep Baby away from the computer, since one of his favorite hobbies is turning off the computer. As Mommy dragged Baby from the room, Baby bucked and bounced like a determined rodeo rider. Mommy relented and set him down on the floor on his feet. Baby remained standing and took about ten steps toward Daddy until he reached the computer desk.


Despite his momentous achievement and extraordinary determination, he was still not allowed to touch the computer.

Yay!!!! So glad you were there to see it! Ten steps? Wow!

Ladybug had a first today - a first bonk on the head. She's alright, but I feel like a bad momma cuz I wasn't fast enough to catch her. I know, it won't be the last bonk on the head.

Have a blessed Easter, my friend!
