First Steps

Matthew has been getting better and better at cruising around the furniture lately. He walks around pretty good holding onto us or furniture with one hand. Last week, we decided to start practicing walking in between us. It is so fun to see him get a hold of his balance and take real steps. He gets so excited at his accomplishments. I'm not sure he will take up walking too quickly as he seems pretty satisfied crawling around. I am in no hurry. I'm pretty sure as soon as he learns to walk, he will start running! He is already a busy guy and walking will just further complicate my job.

One of his first attempts:

So exciting Robyn! I can't believe he's big enough to be walking. How time flies with no blog updates;) (Ahem)
