Well we got an exciting and unexpected Christmas present .... Cody took his first steps during our Christmas Eve festivities! There were 6 adults and several kids sitting around opening presents last night, and he decided he wanted to get from the coffee table to where I was sitting at.
He took 3 big steps to me!!! Of all of those people in the room, only my dad and I saw him -- poor hubby was in the wrong place at the wrong time. We managed to get him to do it twice more last night, but my dad and I were still the only ones that saw it -- everyone else was too busy opening gifts or watching the kids open them.
It was especially exciting since we weren't anticipating it -- with Jessi, we had been working with her for weeks to help her walk. It didn't even occur to me that Cody was ready yet, so when he took those steps, it was so exciting! My baby is growing up so quickly! Sniff, sniff! Gosh, he's already into everything now -- can't wait to see what the next few weeks hold in store!
