We have a walker!

So Tommy took his first steps this week. Because he had been trying many times, Bill and I set some ground rules for what would count as the “first steps.” He had to do two full steps without falling or grabbing hold of something. Funny enough, the next day he met those requirements for the first time.

We took this video just a few minutes after the first steps. He actually took a few more steps the first go-around.

Of course, he still prefers crawling because it’s faster and he’s already mastered it.

So it’s probably going to be a while before he’s walking on a regular basis.

    You set ground rules on what qualified as “first steps”?  That’s funny.

    Why give up something that works so well?  Of course, once the balance thing is in place consistently, Tommy will realize how much faster he can travel farther.
