It’s official, Nicky has taken his first steps! He’s been practicing with us and can usually pull off a few wobbly steps but sometimes manages two or three solid steps before ending up in our arms. Either way, he always claps when he gets to us because he’s just so proud of himself. This weekend he has suddenly gotten so much steadier and more confident. Today when he thought I wasn’t looking he cruised along the hutch in the dining room then let go, turned around, stood for a few seconds, and took three perfect little steps to the dining room table. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Who gave him permission to grow up so fast??
