who you calling a baby? i’m a TODDLER!!


Jakob’s WALKING!!!

He’s been doing more and more on his own lately, cutting corners around furniture and choosing to walk the 5 or so steps to the next piece instead of easing his way around holding on. Today at work a family member was playing with him, and he would walk up to 10-12 steps to the next “thing” to grab on to.

Tonight we finished supper early so I took him for a walk. We live about 10 houses from the end of my street and we walked to the end together, Jakob walking and holding on (barely) to one of my fingers. A few times he’d get tired and sit down, but I’d stand him back up, give him my finger to hold, and we’d keep going.

On the way back home I noticed that when I’d stand him up, he seemed to be trying to move away before I had a chance to stand back up and give him my finger. I tried letting go…but I was nervous because it was all sidewalk and lawns- no large objects around for him to walk to and grab on. So he didn’t stop! He just kept walking down the street, arms up for balance. I couldn’t believe it! He’d make it about the length of 2 properties before stumbling or sitting down, and I’d stand him back up and he’d keep going another 2 or 3 houses.

I kept my camera handy when we got home, and luckily happened to have it on when this happened:

Yay Jakob! Congratulations on another milestone, honey! We’re so proud of you!!!
