Alright, it's true he's no Chuck Norris, but Finn has become a walker...of sorts. He took his first steps a few days ago and last night took 9 steps on his own! Aaron and I got so excited since most of his friends are already running around. Plus, I really want him to walk in time for Halloween so I can take him Trick or Treating fo' real. The down side is, he doesn't seem very interested in turning the novelty into a full-time mode of transportation. He won't perform for the camera and most of the time just lets his legs go limp when we try to make him do it...ARG! He is still very fast at cruising around the furniture and has started to stand up in the middle of the room unaided but pretty much has no interest in walking whatsoever. And yet, the 9-step incident has given me hope...a hope inspired by the holes appearing in the knees of all his pants. Let's just say his wardrobe will be a very big beneficiary once he truly becomes a bi-ped.
This is the closest thing we have to video of Finn walking on his own. He is using a toy that I borrowed from my neighbor which he LOVED. He walked up and down the sidewalk for the entire day. Okay, it was only about 30 minutes but since watching him push a walker was the only form of entertainment available, time sort of stood still.
