Upwardly Mobile

Well, the walking bug has finally bitten Will. He has been taking a few tentative steps away from furniture for weeks now. Two days last week, different teachers at daycare asked if he had been walking at home because he was starting to do it there. Toward the weekend, he started attempting further treks--say across the living room. Sunday he successfully crossed the living room diagonally. Today, Tuesday, he has been walking all over the place. It's like something just clicked for him! He's still not fabulous at it; he's still falling a lot. But now, instead of that discouraging him, he gets right back up and tries again. And again. Perhaps coincidentally, he also just broke his newest tooth--his eighth (and maybe ninth too? He won't let me investigate. For some reason, he doesn't enjoy me poking my fingers into his mouth and feeling around. Can't imagine why!).

As a side note, since we're having some beautiful weather (mid-70s and -80s!), we stopped at the park on the way home yesterday. Will wasn't quite sure what he was supposed to do, but he got a big kick out of the experience. He went down the slide and swung on the swings.
