In the last two weeks my son has gone from pulling himself into a standing position, letting go, taking a few bumbling steps, to outright walking. My mind = blown!
He has the biggest smile on his face as he strides towards me, arms outstretched in anticipation of the hug he knows completes every journey. It's a wonderful feeling to see him so utterly excited to be growing and learning and getting better with every day that passes.
Sometimes he stumbles and plops onto the floor, but its no worry, he just crawls towards something he can pull himself back up with and begins again. Nothing fazes him, no tumble halts his progress, he just keeps striving for understanding, driven by the thought of 'walking excellence'. And he is excellent. He is awesome. He is the best thing.
A beautiful feeling,
