Walking

So have I mentioned that Zachary has been walking? I don't think that I have. Unfortunately, our camera doesn't have video capability but nonetheless, I love this picture. It looks like he is waddling. He has been taking steps since our trip to Ohio. But he is now officially walking! Compared to almost everyone I know who has toddlers he is a little behind in the walking department. But I have been alright with that...considering now he is Mr. Independent and won't hold my hand when he walks or doesn't want to be held most of the time. I try to hold my finger or hand out to help him walk or walk with him and he will stand there and flap his arms and grunt until I stop. It is pretty funny but at the same time I still want him to want me. But I know that this independence is all new to him and he is enjoying it. We've been taking many walks and surprisingly he stays on the sidewalks.

We were out walking last night and he fell forward. The sound of his head hitting the sidewalk was not a sound I want to hear often. Now he has a bump next to his bump and his nose is all scratched up. On a side note...check out those eyelashes!
I guess he doesn't look too bothered by his bumps and brusies! I think that his teeth are bothering him more than anything else. He already had his front 4 teeth on the top and bottom but it looks like he is getting ALL of his other teeth right now...molars included. But he is being quite the little trooper thru it all.
