Stepping in to 2010

Two days before Caleb's first birthday he took his first steps. I was at the computer and Caleb was standing by the bookshelf a few feet from me. I held out my arms as I'd done many times before but this time instead of falling to his knees and crawling to me, he curled up his chubby little toes and then took one, two, three steps right into my arms. We danced and laughed and celebrated and kept practicing until daddy got home that night. By then he could do this:

And now he can do this:

Look out, world. Here he comes!

LOVE IT! The hands come down from the air, and the steps stabilize all too soon. I love the unbalanced newness of a walker. He is such a dolL!
