Blaise took three independent steps today!
He has been walking holding on to "stuff" for awhile now. We were just waiting for him to take off one day, and today before he went to bed Jan told him to walk to him - and he DID! He then walked back and forth between us and we were so excited and cheering that he ended up just lunging his body at us. We had a moment.
For all the things I stressed about in the past 18 months of his little life, late walking was never one of them. I knew I had no reason to. Now there will surely be no stopping him!
