So early last month, I posted about Henry taking his first steps, at which point The Ash and I just assumed it'd be no time at all before the little destructor was full-blown biped. I mean duh, right? But then, as Ash mentioned in a recent post on her blog (quick aside: yay, Ash is blogging!) the little guy didn't seem to want to progress past just those initial few steps, preferring instead to keep things nice and low to the ground. Perhaps to stay at eye level with the dog? Which was cool and all, but as more time passed, we started to wonder if we should be concerned. Was there something we were supposed to be doing? Some trick they forgot to teach us at the hospital? A section of the baby owner's manual that we glossed over? Or was in fact everything just fine, and we just needed to chill out?

Then not a week after her post, the little guy up and decides he's gonna give this walking thing another go. We caught it on video, and since I yam who I yam, I couldn't resist adding a soundtrack.

What a cutie! I love the music choice, well done Tarv. Oh and tell Henry I said, "Hi" back. :) I hope I get to see him in action at Stella's party this weekend.

Congrats on the first step.

It is all down hill from here. As they get bigger, so do the situations that they get themselves into.

Good luck and have fun, I certainly know I am having fun with my offspring

Our daughter is right on the brink as well. She's taken a few steps on her own and will walk if you hold her hand, but crawling is her preferred method if she's in a hurry. Which is most of the time.

I'm glad you moved out of the place with the stairs, those would be a constant worry.

Walking is the new black.

Ha, perfect. Love the camo pants. Get that little one a beer and send him hunting.
