The Pitter Patter of Tiny Feet

It is a week to the day since Leo's very First Birthday, and today Leo has done what I have been praying he would before my inevitable return to work. 

Leo has put one foot in front of the other and taken his very first steps.

Over the past week his balance has been coming on in leaps and bounds, his confidence growing every day. Leo has been taking the odd step or Two, and this morning took Three big steps for the very first time. We spent the afternoon with friends today and it was there that he took a few more steps...and then a few more...before finally taking off and walking!

There was a decent size gap between the sofa and the kitchen stair gate, but off Leo set on his new found feet. He was admittedly wobbly but giving those very first steps his all. He was very triumphant as he reached his goal. The stair gate where he could spy Skye, the pup dog. 

I sat there watching my baby boy walking and could not have been any prouder. A big smile across my face for everyone to see, as I thanked my lucky stars to be here watching him taking those all important steps.

Leo knew he had done something amazing, and rejoiced in the claps and cheers that were all for him. A very special moment with special friends. I caught his second walking attempt on video, as the first time around I was far to un-prepared and too busy watching Leo move one foot and then the other...Walking all by himself.

I could not be any happier, and I immediately rang Luke to try and tell him the magical news. Of course...I could not get hold of him. Typical. When I finally did reach him, he was just as excited as I was and instantly asked me to send the video.

So now it is official...Leo is no longer a baby. 

Leo is a toddler...

So without further adieu, I present you with my baby boy...Sorry... Toddler!

Walking for the very first time!

Now I just need to get my head around this fact!

Well done baby boy!



  1. Aw how fantastic! H walked the daybafter her first birthday, I was so proud! Our babies are growing so fast :(

    1. Aw go H! I can completely relate to the proud feeling! Leo is actually a little toddler now and that is scary! They need to slow right down and stay babies! xx

  2. AHH im so proud of my hairbrush!!! HAHA he did so well, so glad we got to see it x

    1. Yes your hairbrush did very well! It was lovely, such a surprise to! You would think he was so tired tonight but he is currently resisting bed time!! xx

  3. Ahhh, well done Leo. And what a good boy for doing it when you were there, I was terrified I'd miss those first steps and had basically told my whole family to lie if he did it first when I wasn't around.
    He'll be running next! X

    1. Thanks Lucy, I am so proud of him and so very pleased he did it now rather than in a few weeks! I don't blame you, it is such a defining moment in their development, that all mummy's should have the chance to witness.

  4. Woohoo Leo, my little toddler!


I love hearing your thoughts, so please feel free to leave me a comment :)
