-That's small step for Keir, and two giant stunned parents-
OK, so that was a bad play on Neil Armstrongs famous quote, but it was an appropriate description for Jen and I's reaction last night to Keir's first two STEPS!!!!!!
Yes Keir walked on his own for the very first itme last night. He are the details: he was standing with the help of a samll table in his room. He turned and saw a soccer ball a couple of feet away and instead of sitting down and crawling over like he normally would do, he just turned towards the ball and took two steps over to it and sat down next to it. Jen looked at me, and I looked at her and said "Did he just do what I think he did?". After that we both clapped and cheered for Keir, he too seemed very proud of his accomplishment!
Of course we tried to recreate the feat a couple of times after that but with no success, Keir seemed to thing that once was enough for the night, maybe tomorrow night!
This weekend is Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada, so it is a long weekend. We are having my parents, Jen's parents and my brother over for a big dinner on Sunday. It should be lots of fun.
Speaking of fun, i am running in a Marathon on Sunday Morning. I am very excited as it will be my first. More details to follow next week.
That's all for now
Take care
