The nephew just turned one year old last December 25, 2011. We have been practicing him to walk but too afraid if you let him walk on his own. He will find a way to hold on the chair, table, wall or any of us. We have been wanting to see his first step but was not able to give us. A day before his birthday, we went to the mall and let him play at the wonderland. We just watch him play, crawl, sit down and stand up when he is holding me or his mother. I was watching him and his mother take a photo of every move he makes. We were surprised when he stands up and walk on his own. It was a great experience to see his first walk. The whole family did not see it however, the photo above is the proof of the nephew’s first step. We are so happy and proud of him for he was able to conquer his fear.
The nephew is done with crawling life. He starts to walk now and I can tell this will be the beginning of the tiring days babysitting him. Another little gremlin will be walking and running around the house.
