One small step for Fletch
Fletch has been standing up for quite some time and we were patiently waiting to see when he wanted to take some steps on his own. I saw him out of the corner of my eye one morning trying to walk from his music table to the toy box, but he didn't quite make it. I decided to get in the pen and try to motivate a few steps out of him. I used a book, because he has become quite fond of books. They are the first thing he takes out of the toy box in the morning. He finds a book, sits down and starts to babble like he is actually reading the book.
It is very cute to hear him attempt to read. He actually has some inflection in his voice, so I think he's grasping the English language.
Back to walking...I got in the pen with him and used a book to try and get him to walk towards me. It actually worked! He took some tiny steps toward me. He is no Fred Astaire yet, but he will have us chasing after him in no time.
He still amazes us every day. It's hard to believe it has almost been a year since he was born. We are excited to see what the next year has in store.
