No, Not St Louis Photos

I've got something better to share with you today. Maybe not the best quality (ok, definitely not the best quality---this is a video from my Blackberry), but it's a modern day miracle. Our boy can walk!!!

He took his first steps on Thursday. We tricked him into taking 2 steps while he wasn't thinking about it. Then I tricked him into a couple more on Friday (that's what good moms do---trick you into doing exactly what they want), and then there weren't any more steps to speak of.

Suddenly, yesterday he just stood up and walked. The strangest thing I've seen lately. I was starting to think it was just a fluke, then he stood up and walked some more. He was taking about 4 steps before he would fall/give up and crawl. By the end of the day, he was able to take about 7 steps. Today, he only walked this one time that I caught on video. If John or I stand him up, he immediately sits back down. He totally wants to do it his way and in his time. I don't care how he does, just so long as he starts doing it soon. (My right arm just screamed "Amen!")

So without further ado I present to you, Harvey vs Gravity:Part 1.
