I've been trying to get some decent footage on Nicholas and his walking but it never fails that as soon as I get the camera out, he just gets all "deer in the headlights" and all activity stops. His first independent steps began over two months ago but he just didn't seem ready to let go of all of his push "toys" to really get the walking thing down. But during the last week or so, thats all changed.
He's taking steps ALL the time now. He's falling a lot ofcourse too but still. The look on his face when he's doing it is priceless, the look thats like "yeah, I'm doing something big here and I know it." What I also love, love, love is that it almost seems as if each of the boys was waiting for the other to really get moving. I just don't think its a coincidence that Nicholas is finally taking off just as Alex is finally getting a chance to also be upright and moving. I just know that there is this twin/brother thing going on between them. The way they look at each other and its like they speak their own language. I know it sounds hokey but I'm witnessing it daily.
Hey, you thinkin what I"M thinkin?
Yeah, lets get her!!!
For the record it was a vegetable soup kind of day
and just to add some fun, I offered prunes to Alex
you know to help things a long.
ofcourse you can't give something to one boy
and have the other not want some too.
so Mama did not stay very clean during this lunch!!!
Lucky for me these messy boys clean up pretty cute!!!
Needless to say, my heart is sooooo full!!!!
Anyway finally got some footage of Nicholas doing his thing. He loves doing his "laps" between his daddy and me!!!
