Number Three Walks


It happened. Sira held out then took his first steps last night. First Tsega, who besides walking stomach first (love that arched back), runs, spins around, and dances by twisting his upper torso side to side. Then Bereket, who didn't care for it at first, but can now wobble across the house (with his shoulders hunched up and his head sunk low so that I have to ask him where his neck went). And now sweet Sira.

This is how it went. I look over and see Sira standing there at the end of the living room so straight and sure, and I just knew what was about to happen. Then came the steps. I said to Jerry, who's that walking over there? Why that must be Bereket, he says. No hon, that's Sira! Sira, who didn't seem to realize his steps until Jerry and I cheered and hollered him on. Step, step, a little bow with one hand touching the ground (one hand, what confidence!), raises, and more step, step, step, touch, step, step, touch, step, step over to mama and papa.

Ahhh, my babies growing up. Mama and papa are in trouble now.

Yay Sira! Way to go!

I also loved the pictures from the previous post. I would have loved to seen the photo's taken by National Geographic photographers. You should hunt them down and make them send you copies!!

Oh, it is kind of sad and happy at the same time when you watch your children grow up. As much as we love them when they are little, it only gets better! I suggest baby gates! I've never had multiples, but I know they make life much easier when you have 1 toddler.
