Our lil' Lleyton Grey is almost walking! He can now stand up in the middle of the room with nothing to hold onto, and he walks behind his little car too. It really seemed like he would not walk as early as Kenna (10 months) or Brooks (10.5 months), because even just a month ago he was barely crawling/wasn't crawling well. He's making up for lost time, and it seems like he will be right around the 10.5 month mark too! (He will be 10 months on Jan 21st).

I'm not very generous with my definition of "walking", I don't count steps. I say they can walk when they can go across the room. Real walking. Kenna was taking steps at 7.5 months old, Brooks at 9.5/10 months, and Grey has not yet taken an unassisted step, but he's all over with that car-walker! It won't be long until those first steps come, and then...running!
With all his moving around now, he's starting to loose some of those chunky thighs. :-( He's still huge though. Most of his clothing is now the 18 month size.
Here is Kenna, walking! - She was such an athletic baby, which is something you don't hear about often. I certainly wasn't expecting it, considering who her parents are:-) She had an amazing sense of spacial awareness and balance from birth. She was also bold and fearless

Here is Brooks! - He actually began walking on March 23rd, 2008, which was Easter Sunday, but the pics I took that day weren't great, this one is just TOO cute to not repost:-) Brooks was a very timid walker, it took him forever to be comfortable with taking steps and letting go. We were sure he would be older when he walked, but he was only 2 weeks behind Kenna's mark actually.

  1. Isn't it amazing how they all seem to follow similar physical milestones?! Mine were WELL after 12 months on walking - 14, 14 and 15 months :D
