Louis’ 1st Steps

Major Mommy Goggles about to happen. Prepare yourselves, people.  I will make no apologizes for this. :)

LOUIS TOOK HIS FIRST STEPS!!  I can’t even begin to tell you how proud I am of our little man.  Seriously, he is quite amazing.  Bennett and I have tried to continue with the parenting style that is called ‘baby led’ where we let him do things on his own time.  Walking was certainly one of those things.  I know that some parents ‘work’ with their children a lot on this…but we kind of just let him do his own thing.  Lo and behold – he turned out just fine.  Just shy of 14-months, our little dude took his first steps.

Thankfully, we live in the age of technology and were able to capture it.  Isn’t it wonderful?

Did you hear that person squeal at the end of the video?  Yep.  That was me.  I was so ecstatic for him!!  I feel like tomorrow he’s just going to take off running and I’ll never get to sit down.
Haha – maybe that will be my new weight loss plan??

Other ‘big news’ in the workings of little Lou is that he’s now the proud owner of SIX teeth.  Yes, six.  We have four showing themselves at the same time right now and are finally starting to get a full night’s sleep.  Teething is no fun.  I’m sure Louis would agree.

Here are some fun pictures from the last month-ish of our little dude’s life.  We have family photos this weekend (if the weather cooperates) so I would expect some more photos will be posted and shared in the coming days.
