I'm happy to announce that Isaiah is officially a walker. It all began a week after he turned 1. He started to take 1 to 2 steps. Then little by little, he began to increase the number of steps that he would take. Then he discovered how to get back up again if he fell down. Its fascinating and inspiring to watch a baby learn a new skill. I love that they will keep on trying and not just give up because they didn't get it the first time around. I love the determination and the simple joys Isaiah would have each time he would take more steps. He was so proud of his accomplishment. Watching Isaiah grasp this new skill was a great reminder to me that you have to keep pressing forward in all that you do even when you stumble and fall (which we all do from time to time). As long as we get back up again and continue moving forward, we will eventually reach our goals. It was a great day when the walking skill all came together for Isaiah. Now he fully gets it and wants to walk around all day long. He roams from one room to the next. He occasionally crawls if he really needs to get somewhere in a hurry, but for the most part we have a full on toddler walking son in our home and we couldn't be more happier!!!
