Upright Mobility

Today was an exciting day at the Walter house!  Isaac took a few steps while holding my hands.  Up to now, he pushes the chairs around in the kitchen, but he won’t try walking while holding onto Mommy or Daddy.  I am not sure he’s realized he can walk to get to a destination.  He sometimes cruises down the couch, but he seems to do it more for fun than to get where he’s going.

Anyway, this morning I had gone outside to set the cloth diapers in the sunshine.  As I re-entered the laundry room, Isaac was coming toward me.  He held onto my pants’ legs and stood up, just as he’s done a million or so times.  Usually I pick him up when he does this.  I was getting ready to move the laundry from the washer to the dryer, so I wanted to keep both hands free.  I asked if he’d like to look in the dryer while I loaded it – it is, after all, a giant container.  :o)  I took his little hands off my legs and held them.  He turned around, and then took 4 little steps to the dryer!!!  I was jumping and clapping and carrying on like a lunatic!  LOL

Anyway, I managed to (sort of) take a video of Isaac walking.  He was trying to get his hands free so he could crawl because that’s faster, but he managed to get across the living room on just 2 feet.  I couldn’t be prouder!
