He Walks!

Charlie is growing up so fast! The cliche is that your children really do grow up way too fast. I never believed it until I actually had my own. He is 10 months old already. He is walking (!!!!!!), babbling up a storm, and turning into a little-big boy with a huge personality. His tufts of hair are now turning into full blown curls. He can scale the stairs in 15 seconds FLAT, and he loves to terrorize the cat.

I stay home with Charlie on Fridays, and I saw those first steps while we were hanging out in the living room. I couldn't believe my eyes. I felt like the entire Earth stopped for a few seconds, and the joy that I felt watching him motor around was just too much. I called Curtis at work, and gushed to him about our sons new found skill. 10 steps on Friday turned into 50 steps on Sunday, and we have bets that he will be a professional walker by weeks end.

Watch him go!!

YAY Charlie! I can't believe it! I just teared up reading your post and watching the video! How adorable! Brock is still too scared to stand unassisted. So I think it'll be a little while before he walks :-)
