Put One Foot in Front of the Other

Last night, I was on the phone with James as he was driving home (yes, he was using his Bluetooth headset), when Ben let go of his little LeapFrog musical table (which is awesome, by the way, for helping kids to practice standing and cruising). He turned away from the table, took 4 steps, wobbled just a second, then plopped down on his behind.

He's taken a step here and a step there, but we were still waiting for something we could truly call "walking." There's no doubt about it this time, the little guy walked. So that means on Sunday he had his first tooth break through, and the next day he walked. Perhaps today he'll begin speaking in full sentences. Or playing a piano concerto on the keyboard.

I grabbed the video camera last night and tried to catch him walking again, but he didn't repeat the feat before he got tired and fussy. It probably won't take long before I capture it, because I'm sure he'll be doing a lot more of that now that he knows he can.

It's incredible how quickly they start to do things at this age!
