The Walker

Well, The Roo has officially taken his first steps... and second steps... and many many steps now. He is transitioning from being a very speedy little crawler to a very wobbly walker.  It's precious though. Of course, instinctively he knows when I am about to pick up my camera to film said walking, to provide some sort of evidence so that you people don't think I'm just trying to brag that my kiddo is walking before he is even a year old... so as soon as I pick up the camera he drops to his booty and crawls over to the stairs to climb up those. 

And now that we are wobbly walking, I realize we are probably only weeks, days, hours, minutes away from not-so-wobbly walking and before you know it he will be running circles around me. I suppose it's time to baby-proof. Like for-real baby proof.  We covered all the outlets, moved some breakables and picked up most of the knives and guns that were laying around... but that sly little guy has now realized that we have no cabinet locks and no baby gates on the stairs.

And he loves the stairs.  As soon as his little hands, knees, feet, bottom hit the floor he makes a B-line for the stairs.  The wooden stairs. With the sharp corners. The steep stairs. And he wants to go up. And keep going up.  All the way up. Until the 3rd stair from the top. Where he likes to just stand. And grab the rail. And bask in the glory of his accomplishment. And there is very little stopping him once he gets going because he can boogie up those things faster than a girl can untag herself from a picture that makes her look fat.  So baby gates are on their way...
 He also has found the cabinets. And of course his favorite cabinets are the cabinets with cleaning supplies and glass bowls. Why oh why doesn't he like the tupperware cabinet? (smart boy... tupperware is stupid... I can never find a lid and container to match...god forbid you try and organize it) We actually have cabinet locks, but haven't put them on the cabinets yet. I'm quite afraid that I will end up locking myself out of cabinets and having to get The Roo over ot figure out how to get the darn thing open!

Anyway I can't get the video I DO have to upload, so you'll just have to trust me that the little guys is taking steps...

Anyway... He is awesome.

Once Upon a Time....

I started a blog shortly after The Roo was born because I thought it would be a great way to keep people updated on the ongoings of my little guy.  Little did I know how terrible I would be at keeping up with said blog.  I mean, it has literally been months since I posted anything!

So please accept my apology as I come to terms with the fact that I am a terrible blogger. Every time I think, "Oh, I should update my blog" I get busy doing something else and never seem to make time for it... I promise, few blog stalkers that I have... I will try to do better!
