Standing and Walking.

We spent the weekend in Aptos with friends and will be leaving in a bit to go home, sweet home. Charlie is napping and I wanted to send an update on some exciting (to us) things.

Charlie started standing about 4 or 5 days ago. He stands while holding onto things but he has been letting go and just standing. The longest was about 30 seconds - then he plops down on his booty.

Yesterday, Charlie was standing and he put his left food forward. My friend Dorothy and I looked at each other like "did you just see that?!" and it was confirmed: he took his first step. Then he did it again a couple minutes later and our friend Melissa witnessed it too.

This boy is going to walk before he cuts his first tooth!
