He walks!

This week has seen a HUGE milestone in the world of toddler-dom. Max learnt to walk!

It’s been on the cards for a while – he has been standing unsupported for a couple of weeks now, but has always resorted to crawling when he wants to get somewhere. One day last week, he obviously decided it was about time he tried out those feet – and went for it. He did so well, and I was lucky enough to catch those very first steps on camera!


Since then, he has walked more and more and has got faster each day. He now happily toddles around the house and garden and he looks so proud of himself. It must be such a lovely feeling to gain that little bit of independence and be able to do what he sees his brother and sister doing all the time.


My boy is growing up.

    I love the way he gets distracted by things on the way… Just like my daughters when they were learning to walk! It’s like a whole new world has opened up to them

    O wow that’s so exciting! Amazing. I was always intrigued to see what my little one was interested in and where he walked/clambered to-it wasn’t always where I expected! Lovely blog post, really enjoyed it xxx

    Oh how very cute! This is also where you realise that they’re quite fast on their feet and if you thought they could cause mischief crawling, think again! Enjoy it’s a magical moment #ssaa
