Getting Close!

A few days ago Noah finally took some steps. They were just three little ones, followed by a prompt diaper-cushioned fall, but that's progress. He's still a really content crawler, but as you can see, walking (while holding on) isn't so bad either.

Walking. When he's really a walker it means he's officially not a baby any more, right? I think I'm o.k. with that. I like all of this big boy fun we're having.

I didn't get what I wanted.

Months ago, before the holidays even came around, I predicted that Noah would walk by Valentine's Day. Surely, he'd make it by then, right?

That gave him over 14 months to become a walker. I thought it was a realistic (and generous) expectation.
Well, the day has come and almost gone and we still have a very content crawler.
We see signs that he's getting closer, but the idea of letting go of everything is still just a little too scary.He's just a big, heavy kid and this mommy is anxious to do some hand holding as her little buddy walks instead of all of this carrying!
Now I guess I'll hope for progress before St. Patrick's Day. He's definitely in big trouble if I have to wait until Easter!

Being Silly

On Friday we were the picture takers for the 'photo booth' at a church activity.
That's what happens when you have camera gear. So we snuck in before it ended and had someone push the button for us.
