one small step for Blake...

one giant gasp from Mom!

Blake took his first steps last night. I was laying on the floor beside him while he crawled around and played. He would stand on his own and sit down. I wasn't really paying attention at all. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw him shuffle his left foot forward! I sat up and gasped so loudly that Evan jumped off the couch because he thought I'd seen a roach. You see, we're trained around here to know that gasps can mean roaches. So when we hear a gasp, we run for the Raid. Luckily, it wasn't a common household pest.

Best of all, Evan was able to see him take 2 consecutive steps AND we caught the tiniest step of all on video.

Without further ado, the world premier of Blake's first step!

(That's actually Blake squealing with delight. Where did my little baby go!?)

I had to watch it a few times, once to see his feet, once to see your reaction, and once just because it was so darn cute! Way to go Blake!

I like the body shaking before being able to get his foot in the air - oh yeah and the squeal once he got it!
