We're Walking!

Lucas' 13th month came and went and I didn't record (or share) any of his milestones. The biggest and most exciting of which, he started WALKING!!!

HALLELUJAH AND HIP HIP HOORAY!!

Not that I was worried or anything, but he is one of the last in our Mommy & Me group to get up and go.

He has been flirting with it for a couple of months, taking a step here and there, but finally last week, it all clicked for him and he took off. He still seems to prefer crawling because he's a pro at it, but he can walk all over the house and it is darling to watch. I'll try to figure out how to post a video.

The other big accomplishment of note is how vast this little boy's vocabulary is getting and how much he understands. Here is a list of all of the words he either says, retains and/or recognizes:

Mama :)
Dada
Bottle
Bubbles
Balloon
Up
Uh-Oh (although he says Uh-Eh)
This
That
Yes
Pat
Diaper
Toes
Head
Belly
Bath
Dog
Banana
Book
Brush - as in his teeth and hair

I have mentioned Lucas' little tiny stuffed monkey before and how he can pick it out of a group of several other toys (A Onederful First Year), well now he can make the monkey walk and talk and uses a high pitched little voice that simply melts my heart.

Talk about melting my heart, Lucas can now also blow kisses.

I don't know what I would do without this adorable, smart, funny little person in my life. He brings me so much joy and fills me with a love I have never known.

The best is yet to be.

He is such a walker now! I have loved watching him walk all over the place this week! When is he going to learn to say Aunt Leah?! Hmmm....

That's amazing...he's only 3 months older than Alex but that gap is so big at this age! Congrats on your little walker and talker.

Walking is HUGE! I still have vivid memories of each of mine doing it! And I know what you mean - it's hard when you have a group of kids the same age, and yours isn't "keeping up."

I wondered about Addyson with walking too. She could take steps at around a year, but never walked. Never. Until she was like 14.5 months...then she did, and never went back. But she was ahead of the game in all other areas, as it seems like Lucas is too.
