At 9 months, 4 weeks & 1 day, our little Nolan took his first steps!
I was, of course, at work when it happened. When I arrived at Grammie's house to pick the boys up, she told me that Nolan had been letting go of her hands & taking a few steps. I thought she was crazy, "mom, I just spent the entire weekend with him and he didn't show any signs of wanting to try and walk."
Since it was 4:30 and I was ravenous, I went to the kitchen to grub some food off of my mom.
Aren't moms great for that? They always have the most delicious food. I snacked on a bit of lasagna & a homemade cupcake. I love my mom!!
The boys followed me into the kitchen, as did my sister & mom. I turned around and saw Nolan walk from my sister's hands into my mom's arms. I shouted in my happy mommy voice, "good job, Nolan!" He had taken three or four steps over to my mom & I was cheering like he won the Superbowl.
Later in the evening, after we arrived at home and told daddy of today's events; then Nolan walked from mine to Justin's arms. He's only taking 3 or 4 steps at a time, but I'm so proud of him!
And, of course, I can't leave out our little darling, Luke! He has become a crawling champion and can get across the floor in the blink of an eye! He's also mastered the art of 'letting go' and sitting gracefully on the floor when he's standing up.
They make me smile and laugh each and every day. They are both such a joy to be around!
