About little over a week ago Evan turned 13 months old and he thought it would be a good idea to mark the occasion by taking his first steps. I did get a video of his second and third attempts at taking a few steps, the first ones I was not prepared for! When I shared the video with Justin he said he thought Evan looked a little like a zombie. I'll give him the stiff legs and the arms held straight out in front of him, but the giggles seem to belie any real zombie resemblance.
It was evening in Minnesota in November, which meant it was a little dark. I tried to lighten the video a little, but it is probably not going to win any film awards :)
In the last week and a half Evan has grown a little more confident with walking, but still generally chooses to get around by cruising or crawling. It is fun to watch him develop new skills. Who knows what will be next!
