Yep, you guessed it- Gabe has finally decided that walking just might be ok. Last night as I was testing his ability to follow instructions (“Honey, go get your sock. It’s next to the pillow.”) he decided to walk over to get the sock. And then crawl back to me. I don’t think he had any idea what he had done. (And, but the way, he has so mastered the follow instructions gig- it’s awesome).

A bit later, he did it again and based on the reactions of all present, he did finally realize what he had done. So he did it again, and again, and again- each time going to one of us for a big hug and kiss. He loved the attention and the affection.

This morning? Not gonna walk. No way, no how. Eh, he’ll get back to it soon enough.

(And in case you were wondering, no, mommy is not insightful enough to grab the freakin’ camera when the kid takes his first steps. Duh!)
