Payson Walks

So I mentioned before that Payson had walked one day a couple weeks ago. He’d walked about three feet back then.

Yesterday Payson decided that he was going to get this whole walking thing down. With a tube of hydrocortisone cream as bait, he walked back and forth between the couch and kids’ table. He was SO proud of himself. He giggled the whole way.

Wouldn’t you know that the week he starts really walking I leave my video camera at my in laws’!
(and yes you can see our laundry day does not make for a pretty backdrop to his first walking pictures. real life = messy.

The giggling. The giggling was too much. I had to stop him after each trip back to smother him in kisses. I really did.

And the standing. Oh my gosh the standing! He’s 10 months old and he’s standing in the middle of my kitchen like he’s a little man or something.

Near the end of the night he was walking 6-8 feet distances and stopping and standing in place for a looong time! He’s so darn cute!!

  • Oh my goodness…that is so cute! I am actually ready for Eli to start walking. He wants down all the time and nothing stops him. His poor little knees and feet are all scratched up from crawling on the concrete outside. Anyway, Payson looks too cute just standing there. Adorable!

  • Congrats Payson! What a cutie patootie! I love when they are soo stinkin' proud of a new accomplishment. It is such a bittersweet moment as a mommy… DD started walking at 9 months and to this day I feel like I was kind of jipped on the whole 'baby' thing.

    Have so much fun with your little mobile guy 🙂

  • You blog so much, it's hard to keep up with you! 🙂 I showed this post ( and all the others) to my boys and told them, “Look at Payson. He's walking!”

    Carter said, “Good job Payson!!!” with a very excited expression on his face. 🙂

  • YAY!!! What a big boy!!! He is so freakin cute!!! I love that he giggles when he walks!! You definitely need to video that so we can all hear that sweet laugh! 😉 Oh and my favorite quote from this post “real life = messy!” I will second that!!! lol 😉

    These are great pics and what a sweet day captured forever!!! PAYSON WALKS!!!! woo hoo~! 🙂

  • Love these. Can't believe he's walking. Love your blog. If my “baby” was little I would so do this, but he's almost 12 now, so don't think it would be quite as cute as yours.

  • Well today at 1 year and 3 weeks old… my daughter FINAlly took her first steps! I took video. I just love how they look walking and standing!

  • I can't believe I hadn't commented on this yet. What a momentous occasion. Way to go, Payson. He really is an adorable little man.
