Eliot's walking. This was him just this past weekend. All of a sudden, standing up and walking with his push toys. Like it was no big deal. Smiling at us all the way.Then... tonight... two steps on his own. Twice. No push toys involved. It took our breath away. We gasped and screeched and laughed and clapped. Theoretically, I've always thought that each developmental milestone was as important and special as the one before it. But this walking milestone really is all it's cracked up to be. Wow. His little body, moving all on it's own. With intention and coordination. It's the same as all of his other accomplishments, but so much more. I can't believe this little sweet thing will be one year old next week. He's walking and communicating. He's happy and healthy. He's just an absolute joy.
