First Steps - Daddy's look - PRICELESS

Adler has been taking a few steps here and there. His mommy and daddy have been having him go back and forth to them, a few steps at a time. He turned 11 months old on the 16th. I knew it would be a matter of time.

Yesterday he decided to take off. He just let go and started walking. He actually when about 3 feet before he plopped down. But the greatest feeling in the world for this Gammi was seeing the look on his daddy's face.

Zach came in to pick Adler up. When he got to the top of the stairs, I told him to stay there. I stayed a good distance from him and sat Adler down on his feet and told him "Go Get Daddy!"

He toddled over to his daddy. Now it wasn't Adler toddling that got my heart. It was the look on his Daddy's face. Surprise, Awe, Pride. I don't think Zach realized it, but he gave his momma a moment she will never forget. This is one I don't need pictures for. I will always remember seeing my son watch his son walk towards him.

And then my son got to go home and share that joy with April. I know that they had an evening to remember as they watched their little boy learn to walk. Pin It

I cannot believe he is walking. I feel like just yesterday he was a tiny baby. What a fun moment for you to get to share with Zach!
