Scaling Mountains

My son, the second child, never ceases to amaze me. When he turned one, I was sure walking would soon follow.

He had other plans. Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen months rolled around, and still no walking. At sixteen months, on his own time, he decided to feet were better than getting around on all four.

Amazingly within a week, he just moved out. He doesn't just toddle around the house, he moves! He has speed! He has balance! He has confidence!

After this walking feat was accomplished, he decided he was ready to embrace the entire world his big sister is involved in.

He is going to walk, but he is also going to climb. He is going to drink out of his sippy cup and a big kid cup. He is going to take a bath, but he will soap himself up.

He amazes me at how confidently he is ready to embrace the big kid world!

I don't know about you, but I would love to have such confidence for things that a week ago seemed so insurmountable.

Our daughter cruised before she crawled, then cruised for so long that once she decided to "let go" she was full-on walking too, just like your son. Yes, their confidence amazes me too! Love the pictures :)

I love how much we can learn from our kids!
