Walking Soon? (10mo!)
The last several days the boys have been experimenting with letting go and balancing on their own two feet. Caleb does it the best then Eli and Thomas has done it only a few times. But I think Thomas has a plan, since he's Mr. Confidence, he's probably is just waiting it out a bit more. Caleb is really fun to watch because he'll stand up, let go and then giggle and laugh the whole time he's standing, it's like he's getting a rush doing it. All the boys will take a step or two to the left or to the right while they are holding onto something (like the couch or their fence). They don't seem to really know what they are doing when I hold their hands and try to get them to walk forward. Sometimes they take a couple of steps and other times they just want to go back to crawling. So I'm not sure what this means but maybe they are getting close to walking soon...but I guess we'll see. I walked at 10 months and Phil walked at I believe 12 months so I'm interested to see when they'll actually start walking.
I've also started to notice that the hair on the back of their heads is starting to curl a little. I'm thinking they might inherit Phil's big loose curls. I'm very excited, I've always wanted a little boy with big curls so that I could let it get real long and see it bouncing as they played. I hope to let it get long enough to almost start offending people before cutting it : )
