Little Guy Took his First Steps!!!

So, I know I didn't post yesterday but I truly have been sick.  Hoping meds kick in tomorrow.  Upper respiratory stuff and Little Guy has an ear infection.  But, that did not slow him down today.  You must understand where he was in regards to walking.  He wasn't. He stopped using the walker a few weeks ago.  Just scooted all over the floor.  Well, PT came over today.  We figured we'd give it another shot.  So, went upstairs and Reni and I were sitting across from each other.  He was his usual nervous self as he is absolutely terrified of falling.  Been told by experts, he has a high likelihood that he was dropped several times previously.  Did as we normally do.  But, we all got SO excited as it looked like he was going to walk by himself.  And, he did!!!  Just a couple steps at first.  We all cheered and clapped so loud, he wanted to do it again.  And again.  Got so confident, we took him downstairs.  Little Guy walked and walked some more. This was after the PT left so she had no idea.  He walked back and forth in the kitchen.  Then, around the hallway in a circle.  Makes a big circle in our house.  He walked that three times without falling.  Went from not walking at all this morning to walking like a mad man.  He was so stinking proud.  Smiles every step of the way. 

Have to understand, this is the first child ever that we have adopted that has not already been walking when we got them. First one.  We got to see  our youngest son take his first steps today.  Showed daddy as soon as he came home.  He was shocked because he thought it would be just a few wobbly steps.  Nope, all across the kitchen all by himself.  Even turning around!  Just was amazing to witness something of this magnitude.  I know he is four years old but trust me, this is indeed a big deal.  Proud is an understatement.  He was beaming from ear to ear every time he took a step.  And to see all his siblings cheering him on....priceless.  Makes me almost want another one....ALMOST!  Made that clear on Facebook.  we are done.  So was wonderful to see our last child walk for the first time today.  We are going to surprise his OT tomorrow.
