We Have a Semi-Walker

Friday my mom offered to watch Jack while I caught up on house cleaning and got some sleep. So after work I drove to my parent's house to drop him off. While I was getting him settled in he took about 7 steps. It was the most he had ever done! We stood him up a few more times to walk and he would do around 7 steps each time. This mama was thrilled! 

Saturday when I got back to my parent's house he would walk about 10-12 steps at a time. Most of the time he would wobble and fall down after about 4 steps but sometimes he could make it fairly far. 

We stayed the night and Sunday he would make it half-way across the floor. Every single time I would try and video him he would fall down trying to reach the phone. We wants to run so badly. 

Today he still is doing about 7-12 steps at a time. He can just get everywhere faster by crawling and he is all about getting somewhere quick. 

On Thursday he turns a year old and I hope he has gotten a better hang of this whole walking thing by then. I can see it on his face how much he really wants this and so I really want it for him. 

They say once they start walking they are no longer a baby so yeah a part of me wants him to take his time. Walking and a year old at one time. Hard on this mama.


  1. Aww, yay Jack!!! That's so exciting! Grayson is right on the verge of crawling, he's doing the whole rocking on his hands and knees things, and even though I'm so excited it makes me so sad at the same time. They grow so fast!

  2. That is super exciting! LJ is also at that stage and then boom....he just got up and walked across the lounge! Like the day before it was two steps and fall the next day it was 20 steps! He still falls a lot but I love watching him waddle around! So excited for you! It's true's the signs that they aren't babies any more...but each stage is equally wonderful! You have so much to look forward to!
