Baby Steps

I actually cannot believe that I am writing this but oh my goodness it feels great that I am. Little J walked 8 steps alone yesterday and I am beaming with pride. A very special moment for us and especially for little J.
Over the past few weeks he has started to stand alone and has also walked lots more than he ever could, while holding on to something.
Last weekend I took him down to the waterfront for a walk and he walked all the way along holding on to the railings. It did take us nearly one hour including little breaks but he loved every minute.
He has a clam shell leg brace which is like a shin pad but it fits all the way around his leg. This is to protect his tibia from breaking and also helps to relieve pressure of his other bone.
Since he has had it fitted he seems lots more confident and along with his special shoes or any wide toe fitting shoes (like the ones in the photo) I think there is no stopping him now.
We had a feeling he may just surprise us and walk alone so we had the video camera ready on the table to point and shoot when we thought the moment would come, but he caught us off guard - the cheeky monkey.
I did manage to capture little bits on my phone but since then he hasn't walked as many steps alone.
He tends to do it more when his big brother is around.
I will try and get some footage of him tonight and post it but until then I am one very happy mummy.
