So last week, I let you all know that Mr. A is trying to stand on his own and walk but I just wanted to provide an update.
We’re still not quite there with the walking part but he is now standing long enough for me to grab the camera and catch him in the act. And, today he really decided to show off by dancing while he stood for a whopping 15 seconds! You would think with him being able to stand unassisted for this long and even being able to dance, that he would also be able to take a step. However, in true Mr. A fashion, this is still not the case. For some odd reason, he still doesn’t trust himself yet. I’ve tried to help him out by walking with him and only holding 1 hand so that he can become more confident in himself but whenever I stop holding his hand, he laughs and gets into crawling position. Oh well…I guess we’ll just continue to practice. I’m hoping that on the day of his birthday party (in less than 2 weeks), he’ll be able to walk to the door to greet everyone. *crossing fingers for that one!* Maybe I just need to try waving some food in front of him to get him to walk since I’ve seen that this can work before!
P.S.- Please disregard the fact that he has his hand in his mouth in both pictures. His two top teeth are coming in so he constantly has to have something in his mouth right now! *Fun times!*
