Up and running

Well, walking at least! Leo took his first steps today, just days shy of his first birthday! We noticed him standing on his own two feet beside the wall, and coaxed him into walking out to us in the center of the room. Five consecutive steps! A great start! We feel so lucky that both of us were there to see it happen.

It really hits home that one’s child’s accomplishments seem like one’s own. We couldn’t have expected these steps Leo took to be so joyful for us.

As we’ve heard, life as we know it will never be the same now. Let the games begin!

    Wow, how amazing! That must have been heart-stopping in a very good way. And how wonderful that you both got to see it. I’m so proud of him! Love you three so much!
