Steps!!!!!

This morning while at Matthew's speech therapist appointment, Riley took 3 unaided steps. He was standing by my knee and just walked over to the coffee table as though he had been doing it for years!!!! Ayden and Matthew were super excited to see the first time he walked, and very proud of him! Wowsa, where's my baby? Who is this big boy walking around my life???


[watch me beg: please comment. please comment. Puh-LEASE! This is a big step for him (pun intended!)]!!!

YAY RILEY!!!!!!!! Riley is a genius! And that really is super cool that Matthew and Ayden saw him walk. I bet that might even be something they'll remember after they grow up, don't you think? It's possible!

High five, Riley!!

WAIT. Didn't he JUST stand up?!? What kind of genius children are you raising? What are you feeding him? Oh yeah! That awesomeness that comes from you! It must be working!

Yay, Riley! And yay for you guys for actually getting to be there for it. Can you imagine if you missed it and you were in the kitchen and he just came strolling in on his feet?!? HAhahah! That's a funny visual.

Yay Riley!

that's AAAWWWEEESSOOOOOMMMEEEE! Yay.

Me want video. I'm greedy that way.

I love that he was totally nonchalant about it. He's probably been pacing up and down his crib and waiting for a chance to show it off to you.

This post, so simple yet so profound, is making me emotional. I know that walking is a little ways down the road for my gal, but wow. It happens, doesn't it? I mean, one day they just....start stepping. Holy cow.

Super cool that you three got to see it. Did you break into cheers? Did Riley seem pleased with himself, or did he have the look of "Dudes. I've been doing this in my crib for months," like Rob suggested?

SO AWESOME! Way to go Riley!

Ahhh, so cute. Walking? What a stinking Vose. Liza is almost 9 months and stands by herself for long periods of time. The walking is going to happen soon here too. They do grow up sooooo fast!
