Persephone: Parent

A fine site


on May 3, 2014

I’m officially calling Elvis a toddling baby. He’s not a walker yet, but he can do steps between objects, unaided, wibbly, wobbly steps. He crossed a room at a play group the other morning – maybe about 1 meter – completely unaided. He has officially taken his first steps!

I’ve decided that his new found toddling skill has made him the silent assassin. When I’m in a different room, wandering around or even doing chores in the same room, crawling Elvis is loud when he gets close and I try my hardest to not stand on him, toddling Elvis… no such luck. I turn around and he’s standing there, scaring the life out of me. He toddles with such a wobble and usually such caution that he’s silent and then BAM! right there.

And it’s made his stair climbing interesting as he decides half way up/down that he’s going to try and toddle a few steps because he can toddle, so why does he need to crawl all the time, and stairs are like the flat floor, right? Except he can’t toddle down the stairs so he launches into me as I am always right behind him.

But, yeah, a toddling baby! Each day now I can see his confidence in stepping increasing so it won’t be long before we go shoe shopping!
