Miracles really do happen!

I really thought this kid might not ever walk. Like for reals. He started standing on his own around Christmas and taking a few steps shortly after that. With my other kids, once they got that far it only took them a couple of days before they were walking all over the place. Not my dear, sweet stubborn Maddox. For the next month he would do little performances and walk all around while we cheered and then when his fun was over he would go back to crawling. He had the crawl thing down, he could go super fast, sideways, backwards and wherever he wanted so he didn't see the need to start walking. Finally around the end of January (about 15 1/2 months old), he decided it was officially time. I love seeing him toddle all around with his arms stretched out, a huge grin on his face and trying to balance on those chubby little bow-legs.

I was so excited when I saw your comments on my blog. I was hoping it meant there were updates one yours. You delivered! That is the stinkin cutest picture of that cute boy! I LOVE that smile. He is so happy and proud of himself. He looks like a big kid! I wish I could have seen him doing his sideways crawl. Sounds tricky. What a cute big boy!
