2 legs good

People have been asking me for ages if K can walk yet. Now I can say, Yes, he can!

He started moving around by himself using just his arms to pull himself along, commando-style, before progressing to Proper Crawling. About a month ago he made those first tentative steps between the coffee table and the sofa, but it was more of a 'lunge to the next support with a slight shift of one foot' than proper walking. On the other hand, he has been standing without support quite confidently for some time now.

I've often heard reports from friends with young children along the lines of 'He can do 4 steps now' or 'She's up to 6 steps at a time'. It seems that K isn't interested in messing about with that. After a long period of only crawling, on Wednesday he decided it was time to walk. And did so. Not to my outstretched arms or a piece of furniture, but simply across the room. He has also suddenly become able to get himself into an upright position without pulling up on anything.

K has been performing this new feat with a look of 'Hey, look what I can do. You didn't know I could do this, did you?' on his face. It's as if he's been able to walk for ages but has only now decided to let us in on the secret. H says it reminds him of 'Andy' from Little Britain...
