He WALKS!

That's right folks, the dreaded day has arrived. I have a full-fledged I-don't-need-your-stinkin'-help-anymore-mommy-WALKER! I really was hoping he'd never figure this out. I was hoping he would need me to take him everywhere and help him, always. But, alas, Matthew has mastered the art of WALKING. WALKING. WALKING! AHHH!

Two weeks away from ONE. Walking. I can't handle it.

I don't have a photo of this venture, yet, so you'll have to just enjoy this equally cute photo of my brother (who turns 13 on Friday!) and Matt. :)

Christina said...

Yay, go Matt!! Mommy needed you to keep her on her toes. Nadia started walking at 10 months...so I understand the "nooooooo, not yet!" feeling.

Life as you know it is over.

Mobility is not all it's cracked up to be as you already know.

I feel your pain, honey. I really do. *sigh*

And two weeks away!? Sumo is a month away from 1 ... it's horrifying!

Way to go Matthew! They always look so different when they start walking. I guess they can't stay babies forever.

Aw! That's wonderful! Get ready for lots of running around yourself, now! I'm sure you'll be getting plenty of exercise.

Oh no, he's mobile! Well, you know what that means...it's time to have another baby! ;)

Omg, Trevor is your mom!

Cara said...

That's is awesome for him! My first walked before one and was the same with the I-don't-need-your-help-don't-hold-my-hand-I-go-where-I-want!

Poor Steven won't be able to keep up with any of his cousins when we get together! He isn't all that interested in moving, but I'm sure that will change sometime soon.

How old was Adam when he started walking? Is Josiah walking on his own yet?

brenda said...

Poor Trevor, Amy says he is me!!!!!
Britt forgot to mention that Matt did the full walk across my living room floor!!
We were all freaking out!!
Don't forget those running shoes Britt!
Love,
Mom

You go boy! Tell your dad that we said congrats.

Oh girl, that is crazy! Gavin started walking 2 weeks before his 1st birthday too! How nuts is that?

Hope you have fewer bumps and bruises in your future than we've had!

Go Matt! : )

Way to go, little man!!!!

Laura McIntyre said...

Yah Matthew, hard to believe he is old enough to do that though.

You know i didn't find it that much harder once Eilidh was walking, if anything made things easier as the girls could just chase each other around everywhere.
