7 Steps

Henry has taken a half step or two a few times over the past few weeks, but nothing I could hang my hat on and proclaim that Henry is walking. Last night, on two occasions, Henry walked. He clearly had an interest in walking, but he seemed to know that crawling was faster and more reliable and he regularly chose that route.

Yesterday, he convinced himself to try walking and manage to take seven steps before he eventually reached my arms. 20 minutes later, I convinced him to try again and he walked even further before eventually settling slowly to the ground.

He may have walked more today, but at least I know I witnessed his first steps. Talk about a milestone. I need to find a way to capture it on film.
