2 More Firsts Today

#1
Liam followed Miss Purr Bug all the way under our queen size bed this morning. One second I saw him, then the next I heard his head bonk the side of the bed (thinking he was trying to get under there). By the time I got to that side of the bed to grab him, I watched as he exited the other side. Amazing! This kid bonked his on the underside of the box spring a bunch of times in the name of grabbing a cat! I was stunned he had no red marks on his little head. And more stunned that he actually fit under the bed and moved that quickly too!

Liam took one step towards me tonight... like it was a normal thing. He pivoted from the couch (letting go of it standing) to face me and took a leap... he stood a few other times tonight and took one more step. I can't believe that happened overnight! I can't wait for him to try again tomorrow! I guess his balance is better than I thought!

Wow! It's amazing how quickly children grow. It won't be long before Liam is running after the kitties and slithering like a snake under all the beds---just because he can.

Wow! Thats great! I hope he does it again for you! Boo has done that once or twice apparently, but I've never seen it so as far as I'm concerned, it never happend!

It really is funny the kinds of pian they'll endure all in the name of chasing the kitty!

Wow! His first step!!! He's learning so fast! You'll be running after him soon!

That's so cool that he gets along so well with your cats. Good for him that he bonked his head and ignored it. :) What a good strong boy! and focused too... :)

Kids are so resiliant!It's amazing that he donied his head, and then just went on.

How great that he is starting to take steps already! That is very young to be doing that!

Yay for Liam! I am very impressed and Trent is making it a competition, he says Charlotte's got to have her first step by October 1st to keep up.
