On the move

We've known it was coming for a long time because as soon as he really started crawling, Jackson had us chasing after him, but it's a whole new ballgame now - Jackson got "Mater" from Trent, Amanda, Riley (and Baby V) for his birthday and is loving being able to push it around as evident by yesterday's video (sorry that part of it is so dark - the hall light is at the other end of the hall, but you can see him motoring around and then making a beeline for the toilet in our guest bath - which he seems to think is one of his own personal toys (along with Buddy's water dish that seems to serve as his "indoor pool".

Yesterday, however, he took his first solo step and while most of the time he still chooses to sit down and crawl to us...or if he gets close enough just fall forward into us, we know that these first few stumbles will soon be a distant memory as Joey and I run after him as he learns his own Shoup Shuffle! Scary, but exciting, all at the same time!

Stay tuned because I still will get a few blog entries finished soon with titles like these:
*Decade in Review
*Up and at 'em
*Jackson is 9 months
*Snow day(s)!
*Jackson is 10 months
*Happy Easter!
*A hippy no more
*Play Ball!
*Jackson is 11 months
*Picture time!
*Having a ball
*A trip to the beach
*Turn around
*Jackson's 1st birthday party
*Holy Water

Some may be brief, but I WILL finish them all before this year is over! :)

...Til next time, Keep Shuffling!

I get such a kick out of watching this. I just hope when he's of legal driving age he doesn't do with cars what he did with 'Mater. :D
