Walking's My Favorite.

That's right! You heard me! Our little D-diddy is now a walker! Monday night when we got home from work we took Dawson into the living room to practice his walking skills. We do this best by having FOOD readily available. So we grabbed some fruit puffs and we each took turns holding a fruit puff and encouraged him to walk from one of us to the other. He'd get one glance at the fruit puff and as long as he was balanced when he started off, he'd be on his way.

Now he walks all the time. If he is already on his knees, he won't get up to walk. He'll crawl to whatever it is that he wants. If he is standing up at something though, he will just walk to something else he sees that he wants.

He does walk sideways sometimes. He has started off with good intentions to walk to me or Jason and then can't seem to walk straight ahead and he ends up somewhere else entirely. It's so cute. Now..will be able to keep up with him?
