Please excuse the poor photo quality it’s all I could manage with my phone in the heat of the moment.
The big news in these parts is that Jack took his first steps this weekend! He has been walking holding on to furniture, or people or the poor dog for a while. But these were his first unsupported steps. The blessed event took place at the Sharkpig offices. He really wanted to play with this hanging, dangling, yarn poof (not really sure what to call it) that is hanging off the pencil sharpener decorating the office. He stood up from a squat, took a step forward than grabbed the poof. I tried not to make a big fuss over it, but did gasp rather dramatically (very daytime drama/Emmy worthy.)
I am not sure he really understands what he did. Although I had a suspicion that it was coming. He has been behaving in a similar manner as when he started crawling. He has been having a harder time falling asleep, because his body is just to full of energy. Even after bath and massage, his little muscles are still taught and tight. He has also been a little sensitive and attached, which is not his usual way.
He has taken a few steps every day since, although it has yet to evolve in to full-blown walking. I can’t believe how much my little Home Slice is growing. He will be 10 months in a week. Onward and upward!
