Walkin' on Sunshine

Andrew and I have been coaxing Milo to walk for the last couple of weeks (like you see in these photos, which were taken last week). He could stand fairly well, but he always panicked and wanted to either hold onto something or sit down.
But we persisted, and tonight he gave in. At eleven months and three days, Milo took his first steps!
Milo and I were in the living room, and he was playing with my work ID badge. He stood up all on his own, and balanced there for quite a while. He tentatively took a step, then three more before sitting down.
I cheered and clapped for him. He was all, what are you clapping for? To him, it was just another day. But to me, it was the first step toward a whole new beginning.

He'll be on the move from now on. Can't wait to run around the yard with him this summer.

Ha! First thing I said when I read this post was "Yay, Milo!" Apparently everyone else did, too. Instead, I'll leave with a cheer..."Milo, Milo, he's our little man. Let's give him a great big hand!" APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE!

ps... happy almost 1st birthday!!!
