On His Feet
Well, the time has come. I tried to slow the process simply because I understood the implications, however my sweet Abraham is definately on his feet more than on his knees now. He started pulling up very early and was crawling well by 7 months – all over the house, chasing the cat and finding little things left behind by his siblings.
About a month ago he started taking small steps and took his first series of steps (5 in a row) while we were visiting friends (about an hour past his bedtime). I was impressed and they were honored. Since then, he has been on the go! He will still occasionally drop to his knees when he realizes his speed is actually maximized with the crawling maneuver. Overall, however – his is an official walker! Welcome to this important developmental milestone, my angel.
