More steps...

Matthew is all about trying to walk now. It's so fun, and definitely a thrill for us! :)

Tonight he was going back and forth between me or Sean and the couch, he did it about 5 times, 4-5 steps each time. WOW!! It won't be long now. I can hardly believe we may have a walker before too long.

Sean was lamenting the fact that Matthew is going to fall down a lot more now (he thinks he can do more than he can do... and will lunge forward & nearly face-plant)... I'm not ready for bumps and bruises but I know it' all a part of growing up. Ouch!

He took four steps! Twice!!

I should preface by saying, I know he's a little slow with walking, haha, but this is still really exciting and scary! :)

So lately Matt's been getting good at walking holding one of our hands or his walking toys. This morning while we were playing outside, he wanted to go over to the picnic table a few steps away. He would normally flop down on his bum or grab my hand to go where he wants to. Instead, he just... started... walking! It was only a few steps (4 to be exact) but I was like... WOW!!! HE WALKED!!

I thought it was a fluke. He's never even stood alone. Anyway later this afternoon we were at the park and he was standing holding onto his stroller, and again just turned around and took 4 steps before sitting down. :O

OMG!! I am totally freaking out here!!

Birthday Ice Cream!

I forgot to post that we started a new tradition for Matthew's birthday - going out for ice cream! His birthday day was the first time he'd ever had it and he LOVED it!!!

At the Dairy Queen near us, overlooking the Don Valley:

Matthew's first taste! It looks like he's not happy about it, but believe me, he was.

Matthew's birthday party

Thanks to all who came to the party - I hope you had as much fun as we did! It was a gorgeous day, perfect weather to be out in the back yard. Here are a few pictures of the day - all in all I think Matthew did really well for his first party :) And thanks especially to Nonna for all her hard work helping us to get ready, and Danielle for her awesome clean-up skills!
