My little walker

We have been patiently waiting for Hunter to start walking. He's been pulling up and cruising along the furniture for a couple months now and we figured he would start walking any day. A few weeks ago he started letting go of the furniture and would take one or two steps before either falling down or falling into my arms.

Finally this past weekend he let go and took about 5 steps in a row and I was able to actually get it on video.



Then last night I noticed was taking even more steps and going further so I had Kristian tape him walking to me.



I couldn't believe how much further he was able to go after only a few days. He'll be running a marathon soon!

That's earlier than Laura walked, but she didn't toddle. I joked that she practiced her in crib while we weren't looking because she'd go from not walking to running. She was 14 months which is fine. She took her first steps early though but then didn't do it again for months - probably because she was such a good crawler.

The video is precious. He is so proud of himself! Go, Hunter!

Wow he walks really well for someone who's just starting. Chloe took her first three steps one night, and didn't even try again for two weeks, but she's a full time walker now.

Ahhh!!! Go Hunter!!! :) What a little star. He is already walking so well for just starting! He's going to be running all over the place in no time I would say.

Also I just realized a whole bunch of other Hunter videos started playing after one finished. A Hunter marathon of cuteness with giggles, how bigs, swinging and high fives! :) Love that kiddo!!
