toddlin'

My little boy is officially entering the ranks of TODDLER. He has started to walk! Oh, the clapping and cheering that has been going on at our house for the past five days. He has also taken a tumble down each set of stairs in our home, as well as successfully crawling up each. He's unplugged almost every lamp within reach. His next goal is the toilet, which he has also successfully reached twice, only to be caught in the last second before reaching in for victory. And tonight, I plucked four pieces of dog food from his mouth. He is boldly going just where his brave sister went before him. She survived it too and I find that I am just as amused this time around with all of his antics as I was with hers. Each age makes me think that this is the very best time. It just keeps getting better.

And better.

* Another day I will write my thoughts on my little "unplugged" experiment. I will write all of my deep, deep thoughts on the electronic age we live in and why it is both a blessing and a curse. I will also write all of my jumbled and yet-to-be-organized thoughts on blogging and privacy. For now, I just don't have all the words.

I would rather just think of my little 10-month old and smile. It just keeps getting better.

What a great post! And a great pic! He looks a little off-balance, and toddler-y. Awww.
