Happy Baby’s First Christmas

“Mom, Happy Baby just took his first steps today!”

I could hear the joy in my son’s voice.

The day before, they had been at our house, and while my son fixed up a Wii for me, and showed me how Wii Fit works, I walked Happy Baby around the house, holding on to one finger. He really didn’t need the finger, it just gave him confidence.

It is so much fun watching him walk. He takes five to eight steps, then stops and sits while he thinks about it for a while, then up and starts again.

To him, mostly Christmas was just another day, only with more people around. He loved it. 🙂

  7. He looks like a real charmer…personality plus! I’m sure his second year will be one of exploring his environment THOROUGHLY with his new-found walking (and soon to be running, no doubt) skills. We are blessed in the Grandchild department, eh? Happy New Year!

  8. LOL, truly blessed, Grammy, and I am truly grateful for all I learned about grammy-ing from YOU. 🙂 Actually, he doesn’t turn one until February, but he is going great guns, and full of ideas for new things to try, doors to open, locks to unlock, etc. Life is going to be exciting for this boy!
