On the Move

I had a completely different post thought up and ready for today, but then this happened:

Tubthumping, Chumbawumba

I know nobody, except maybe Grammy and Grandma, made it through all 4 minutes, but did you get the gist of it? I’m WALKING.


A few notes:

  1. That movie? NOT on a loop – I literally stood up, took a step or two, fell, and then, undeterred, got back up and tried again… FOR AN HOUR. If you watch closely, somewhere in the middle I take about 4 steps, which I did a few times and was about as far as I got for now.
  2. You’ll notice that I’m randomly standing up *in the middle of the room* – not cruising or pulling up on anything. I’ve never done even *that* much before, so Mommy was all amazed even before I tried to move forward. Also? Is it weird that I just tried walking from the middle of the room? Mommy kind of expected me to be cruising and let go one day…
  3. Ummmm, please disregard all the dog toys and books on the floor – it was the end of the day. Also, Henry is mortified to appear so scraggly looking – he needs a bath and a haircut AND we went to the beach on Saturday, so he’s not looking his most handsome.

So yeah, I totally walk now. Whatever.
