Baby Steps

Today when we arrived at daycare to pick up Jackson, he was waiting at the glass door. He was very excited to see us, but we couldn't really open the door since he was so close to it. I cracked the door open and Jackson slammed it. He loves to slam doors. Then, he realized that he was still on the opposite side that we were on and started to cry. One of his teachers picked him up and moved him back a few feet. I opened the door and got close to the ground, as I always do, so that he could crawl over to me. In the previous post, we wrote about how much we treasure the moment when he crawls up to us at daycare as fast as possible. Well, today, he WALKED over to me! I said, "Wait! He just walked to me!" The teacher said he had been doing it all day, so they figured he had been taking steps all weekend. Rob missed it since he was out in the hall, but Jackson walked into his arms once we got home!

Since turning 1 (42 hours ago) he has learned to walk and learned to climb on things. As Jackson would say, "Uh oh."

That's funny. When V started walking, it was the same thing. We were so suprised and her teachers were all, "Yeah, she's been doing that." Gah!

I want a video! Beginning walkers are so cute!

Whoo hoo! So happy I got to see it myself before flying out! Who knows what he'll be getting into by the next time I visit!
