First Steps

Well, it had to happen at some point.

Corbin took his first steps tonight. We have been encouraging him to stand on his own lately. We have been putting him between the two of us & letting go & see what he does. He's been getting better & better at the standing thing. Tonight he surprised us by taking steps!

The first time, he was standing for maybe 5-6 seconds on his own & then took 3 very tiny baby-steps, catching himself between each one. Then he lunged forward & fell. The second time, he took 1 medium-sized step,then a small one, catching himself between each step. Then he fell back on his butt. We tried to encourage him to do more, but he must have been tired, because he was done "playing" like that.

But I teared up the first time. I don't know if he's going to actually keep going with this & start walking or what. It was exciting!
