baby steps

For the first time in his life Saturday, Daniel walked! I was out to lunch, so Steve got to see it first, but Daniel was happy to give a repeat performance when I got home ... and every day since. He stands all solid and proud and then starts to shuffle forward, legs stiff, like a zombie with a big grin on his face. It always ends with him in my arms, giving me the biggest monkey hug, which is the best reward for both of us.

Wow! He is starting pretty young- what a little man. Quinn didn't start walking until 15 mos.

He looks so proud of himself (as well he should be!)

Look at that smile! Babies must know that they are doing this really great thing when learning to walk, because they smile to adorably! I'm sure the reinforcement is high on his Mom & Dad's end as well!
