Baby Steps

Oh dear, something new has begun and I’m not too sure what to think about it.  My precious little pudding has grown up and started to take some steps.  The first one happened on Monday where he stepped towards me.  I didn’t see it though.  Then last night the little snickerdoodle started taking more.  He took 3 steps toward me from the coffee table like a total champ.  After that he was too excited to walk.  His mouth got too big and he was giggling too hard to be able to move anywhere without falling.

So, I am proud.  Very proud.  I’m just sad because his first year is drawing to a close and I already forget 90% of what happened.  I’m glad I have this blog to remind me.  I LOVE having a baby around.  He’s just priceless and he makes me smile all of the time.  Just with his funny grins and sounds and his wonderful mushy body.  I am excited to watch him toddle after Silas and try and do everything just like Silas does.  It’ll be nice when I can watch them run around and grow and bond like brothers should.

I guess he’ll always be my baby, I just wish he could stay a baby a bit longer.  I’m glad they don’t really turn from baby into little boy for another year.  With the first one you think they’re big but with this second one I’m realizing just how tiny he still is and I’m enjoying every moment.


  1. It’s funny how they know they’ve done something special and are so proud and excited. He needs to do a couple steps for me tonight when I drop by!

  2. Oh my gosh! How excting! It’s kind of sad though, you know, how fast they grow up. Sometimes I wish they could stay babies forever, yet other days I love seeing them do grown-up things.

  3. Aaaah Good Job Ikey!! You’ll be in step with Silas very soon 🙂 Watch out Mommy! hehe I was just thinking today it’s weird to think we’ve been here for YEARS growing and learning and doing and they’ve been here for just MONTHS (almost 10 months in our case) and they already have learned so much and it’s so dang amazing to watch them. When you really think about it, it seems they should be laying around doing nothing for like a year and then maybe they could grow from a baby stage. But oh no, they’re on a mission! Sorry for writing a post in your comments 🙂 I have a bad habit of doing that. I’m going back to my beer bread, shrimp scampi and guacamole now 🙂
