Miles started walking properly!
He's been able to walk for ages ~ around furniture, along walls, etc, but we've not pushed him. Easier said than done. Trying to remember to enjoy every moment. Embrace him for who he is in the moment. No need to be bigger, better, faster, more ___.
Anyway, today we were with Sarah & Mia, Beth & Lucas & Grandma Leighton, and Miles was watching Lucas stumble around. He looked him up & down with curiosity & then.... comprehension.
"I can so do that". He stood up & walked. Just like that. Yay for him.
& still we don't push, no 'one more step, show mama', none. He is so confident. He did it for himself. Not to please us. The joy is in him. I love it.
