Today’s the day!

It’s one of the most frequently asked questions I receive.

Is he or isn’t he?

For the longest time I haven’t really known how to respond.

“Well sort of…”

Exploring your room and checking on your baby brother…

You darn rascal Charlie, you’ve been teetering around taking four or five steps at a time for a few weeks now.  And you have long since mastered using the push walker, which you now use to run races with your big brother.

But the moment anyone dares to cheer you on or point out that you are indeed walking (sometimes even across the entire room) you immediately drop to the ground.

For days now I’ve heard rumors that you were walking.  At the church nursery, when playing with other friends.  But you have been holding out on your mama for some reason.

Charlie choo-choo (our long-standing and favorite nick-name for our sweetie) something about today must have just felt right.  Because sweet boy you decided that today was the day.  (When will mommy ever learn that it’s your decision to make?)

It’s officially a good day for walking!  (Which will make picture taking a whole new challenge…)

I’m so proud of you my sweet Charlie choo-choo!

  1. He looks so proud of himself! What a cutie! My littlest boy (also a Charlie) is just a few days younger than your Will. My family enjoys your blog so much!

  2. Wonderful!!! Could he be any more gorgeous???? He kills me. Can’t wait to squeeze him!!! Oh, and his brothers, too ;-). big luvs

  3. Congratulations!!!!! It is so exciting when they can finally walk. My daughter was 3.5 years old when she started. It seemed like she never would. Charlie must be so thrilled to be able to explore alot more now.
