Over the past few days James has started to take an interest in walking. It started with him just standing up on his own and then he started taking one or two steps before falling. It's like watching a little drunk man - he hasn't mastered balancing himself for more than a couple of steps. He also likes to have a toy in his hand at all times so that is kind of "added difficulty". If he would just put the toys down and focus on walking he would probably get it faster. He will also let us hold both of his hands and walk with us which he was not interested in at all a week ago. I can already tell that once he gets the hang of walking he is going to be running because when we let go of his hands to let him walk he wants to go, go, go and he ends up falling pretty quickly. I tried to get some action shots:
we are babysitting a friends puppy and she tries to take all of James' toys - she is after this stuffed football he has -
see ya' later mom!
Just another day of being a cutie-pa-tootie!
