And He's Off. . .

So proud of himself! He kept saying, "Whoa, whoa, whoa!!" Walking like a pro!!
Proud big sister

Last night Jack decided that after 16 months it was time to start WALKING!!! It was so cute! He just took off from the kitchen to our bedroom, back to the kitchen/living area, into the guest room and maybe fell twice. He giggled the whole time. He's totally a pro and you'd never know he just started yesterday. I guess that's the good thing about walking a little later---not as many bumps and bruises! It's so weird to see him walking around. And it's weird to not have to carry him in public places, like church or restaurants. Our arms seem very empty. . . and we'll enjoy that for the next 25 weeks. : ) Way to go, Jack! We're proud of you!!

Way to go Jack! Don't feel bad- Cooper just started walking too. Jason and I joke around because both of our boys were late walkers- we said that maybe we made them that way by always carrying them and making the "limo" ride too comfortable and then there is no need to learn to walk. Why do it when mom and dad will just take me there?

Aww . . .baby growing up just in time to welcome a little sibling! Something about walking that makes a baby seem so much more grown up to me for some reason. Congratulations!
