Jimmy took his first steps today! I was sitting on the couch, stood him up in front of me(Jimmy has stood unaided several times in the past few days), held his Baseball Tigger in my lap, let him go and Jimmy, without touching or otherwise holding anything for support, took 3 or 4 steps towards me to get his Tigger. And he did it again a few moments later. Small steps for sure, but it's crossing another developmental milestone off the list.
We are so proud of our little Jim-Jim!

Jimmy is 14 months old now. He hasn't "officially" walked yet, but he's getting real close. He's talking an awful lot too(The little chatterbox!). He can say Daddy and Mommy, and he's also said book and hi. Last week, something caught his attention on TV and he turned around and said "Who's that?" He also has said "I love you" and yesterday, when dropping Mommy at Auntie DeeDee's house, he said to Auntie DeeDee: "Go to work." In the grocery store parking lot, he said "Gramma."
He now has six teeth. Two up and four down. He crawls pretty fast, also stood on his own for a few seconds. He's a champion furniture cruiser and climbs better than Sir Edmund Hillary ever did.
He's getting really inquisitive, meaning that we have to keep our eyes on him at all times and, best of all, he sleeps through the night all the time now. (WOO HOO!)
Jimmy is our little miracle and we love him very much!
"Goo Goo to the hand!"
Today, my lovely wife Kim and I(Am I lovely too dear, or just ruggedly handsome?) commemorate our 4th wedding anniversary. (The actual celebrating starts tomorrow night.) She's my sweetie, my best friend, my other half and she's actually saved my life at least twice already. As that famous philosopher Rod Stewart once said:
You're in my heart, you're in my soul
You'll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you're my best friend
You're in my soul.
I love you my darling!
