There's a new walker in town

Boaz has finally decided that he is brave enough to let go and take a few steps. He seems to be very cautious. I am sure I will appreciate his caution even more when he is older. Maybe he will help prevent Canon from breaking any bones or doing other ridiculous boy things. I doubt it though. Canon will probably tell Bo to just do it, then we'll rush them both to the emergency room! Ha, they will be boys.

Anyway, it has been very exciting to watch our little guy branch out. I have been telling him that he needs to walk before baby sister gets here. I have been a little doubtful though. He is a very fast crawler and pretty quick with the furniture walking, why would he want to slow down and walk alone? Ever since Albert got home, we have been working on walking more. Today he was walking along our chair and thought he'd like to play with the ride-on truck. So, he let go and took 6 or 8 steps until coming to a road block - Cheyenne. There was no way he could walk around her. So, he fell to his hands and knees and crawled the rest of the way. He did this several times today. Even when he was furniture walking, he just lightly touched one hand on the furniture or wall. It's just a matter of time until he's running with his crazy bro!
