Kale’s Walking

This is Ross posting.

Over the last 2 weeks or so Kale has gone from letting go of whatever he’s holding onto for a couple of seconds to full-on taking 10 or more steps in a row. There’s usually some shaky steps, and he often has to stop in the middle to confirm his balence, but when he get’s going he is GOING. He’s also gone from sitting/crawling 80% of the time to standing/walking 80% of the time. It is especially interesting to watch him become fascinated with some toy of his, while he’s standing up, and he forgets that he’s standing at all! Then WHOMP; onto his butt (which he’d long ago mastered).

I was home last night alone with him and enticing him to come to me.

He really just wants to walk all over the place. If you pick him up while he’s stomping along, he’ll squirm until you put him down again or he’ll play ‘dead-cat’ by throwing his arms up and sliding out of grasp.

It’s pretty awesome to see how quickly he’s learning.

  1. Georgia is at the exact same stage. She’s still a bit timid about going too far (I think 13 steps is about her limit so far) but she’s so excited about walking that once she starts it’s hard to get her to stop. She’ll spend ages just walking between Ian and myself and she expects a big fanfare at the end of each walk which we are more than happy to give her!

    1. Kale will be one on July 8th. So, almost a year. he took his first steps at 11 months and 1 day.
