Will walks!

We knew this day was coming sooner rather than later.  Will has been cruising along the furniture for a while now, and as you saw from yesterday’s post, he is getting better and better at pushing his cart around too.  I’ve corralled Will in the great room with a series of furniture, pillows, blankets, doors, gates, and even using his walker as a blockade.  With his new sectioned off area, he can now cruise in a complete circle, or run around with his cart all he wants.  Well Monday, Will was 10 months 2 weeks and 1 day old, he officially took his first step.  Then Tuesday, he figured out that he could take several steps before collapsing.  Below is video from Tuesday.  Now he can take a few steps, stop and stand, then take a few more before falling.  Unfortunately, he is not very cooperative about doing it for the video camera.  He loves the video camera, as soon as I turn it on, it dings, and he stops whatever he is doing and becomes focused on the camera.  So if he is walking and I turn it on, he usually jerks around and falls down.  If I turn it on before he starts walking, he just wants to grab the camera instead of walk.  😦  Needless to say, I’ll try to get more video and I’m sure I’ll do another post about walking soon. 

We’ve been to the pool a couple of times this week, and now all Will wants to do in the baby pool is try to walk.  He doesn’t realize if he falls in the pool, he goes under.  Oops.  We only had one face plant in the water. 🙂 

Life as I know it is over . . .
