So it happened. My baby turned one on Friday. We were all so excited for this big milestone for our Jacky that when the day came I was just so happy for my big boy that it wasn't as bitter sweet as I was anticipating it to be. It does make me sad that his first year flew by so quickly, but I am just loving this stage with him right now. He is gaining so much personality and is just a joy to have around every day. No new teeth to report this month, just a little thing called walking! And yes he took his first steps (other than the step and a half he took prior) while at my parents house when I had the flu. Little stinker. He did make sure to promptly come home and show me his new trick. So I forgave him. He usually takes about four steps at a time, but has walked the entire length of the living room a few times. He is very sturdy but gets super hesitant and nervous after a few steps and just sits down. He definitely still prefers crawling to walking, but should be up walking around full time in no time. I love it when he does walk because he is so dang smiley. He knows its a big deal and that he is hot stuff.
