First Steps!

How could I forget?

Jacob took his first steps today :D

It was a total surprise so I have no sort of photographic or video evidence to share with you, but it was amazing. He was sitting on his trike, moving the handlebars back and forth (which is about as far as trike riding goes, so far). He slowly climbed off, and started to sit down whilst still holding onto the handlebars. Then he changed his mind, stood up, and took 3 steps straight over to where I was sitting. I got rather excited and shouted "Ohmygodohmygodohmygod" and rushed outside to grab Jamie to come see.

We passed him between us for a while, and he alternated between taking 3 or 4 steps, and falling straight towards the other parent with no attempt made to take even one step. He seemed to do it best if he was standing up unsupported first. It was a shock each and every time he did it, but so much more exciting than anything that's ever happened in my life before.

Nothing is safe now ;)

It IS exciting, isn't it!?
Then come the first "real" shoes and a blubbering Mummy!
