November 16, 2012 Clay officially took his first steps! He is 10 1/2 months old. He was standing next to a chair, and the look in his eyes said, "I want to get to that piano bench where my mom is sitting. If I just let go and pick up my feet . . ." So he took a couple steps and lunged toward me. It was momentous. I immediately called Alvin to report the news.
Clay gets a kick out of standing and balancing for a few seconds by himself. His faces lights up with that open-mouthed grin.
