A Monumental Day

Noah and I both walked at 8 months--so we are told--but after seeing Gabby and Alex and concourses of other babies NOT walk at 8 months, I just assumed it was parent folklore.

I'm now a believer for today, at just 8 months old, Oliver took his first step.
Oliver is apparently an equal parent opportunity baby because he waited until Noah came home for lunch to pull out his trick--didn't want his pop to miss it. What a swell kid.


  1. Kaila, I spent a couple of hours with Grandpa at Dialysis, and I showed him your blog. He and I read this remarkable news together, and several of your other blogposts. Of course, I don't think it's a big deal at all to have an 8-month-old walker. Been there, done that.

  2. He just wanted to get up off that nasty grass. Less skin touching it this way.

  3. Man...he is just growing up so fast!
