One foot in front of the other

I have experienced one of the biggest thrills a new Mom anticipates...EJ took his first few steps!!!

Before any of you think it, yes I know he's a little on the late side. His cousin is 3.5 months younger and her first steps where a few days ago. But he's still in the "normal" range so there was nothing to be concerned about.

Those 5 steps were very wobbly, but he walked right into my arms :) He'd much rather crawl for now since he can get places so much faster doing it that way, but I'm sure it won't be long until he is running around the house. I'll feel better when he's more sturdy, but until then I'm counting on the occasional bump and bruise as he figures it all out.

And I don't think I've ever posted about his "wide" vocabulary...
Mom mom mom mom (he goes on forever LOL)
And I swear he can say yogurt :)

He's learning to wave good-bye, but in my opinion it looks more like he's milking a cow. Does anyone remember the kid (little Jack??) in Meet the Fockers doing that????

And he's learned how to get down from the couch feet first, so now every time he's getting changed he tries to back off of the changing table. YIKES!

Finally, on a personal note, I had my yearly check-up this morning. It was the first time in a full year I've had to drop my pants at a doctors' appt. Hard to imagine I did that hundreds of times from 2006 - 2009. I don't miss it at all.

Just some cuteness...

My little guy climbed up all by himself..scary!

I have also heard that boys get around to things a bit later than girls.
