A Step in History

August 17th, 2006

I haven’t much time to write tonight, but I had to at least chronical the news:

Kenny  walked for the first time  today!

For the past few weeks he’s been mighty close – walking like a miniature speed racer behind his little push car, occasionally stopping to take one, single, precious step out from the safety of the plastic handlebar…

But always sitting down firmly on his rump before the second step has time to materialize.

But this morning, he took a full 5 steps from my hands into Casey’s waiting arms, then did the same thing again tonight.

I think that makes it official.   My baby walked!   Did we have a camera?   A video recorder at the ready?   Of course not… but I’ll never forget the huge look of joy and surprise that overtook Kenny’s tiny face at the realization that he’d just crossed a gap without holding on to anything.   He was aware of his triumph, and so happy at himself.

I need to go now.     For goodness sakes, this opens up a whole new bucket of baby-proofing issues…
