Malakai's First Steps

Just a quick post to note for prosterity (and to congratulate my little monkey) on taking his first steps today!

After almost a month of standing like a champion, Malakai took his first unaided steps at his first session of physio therapy for 2010 this morning. I had a feeling this might happen, because sometimes it just takes another perspective to show him the 'motor plan' of how something is done.

I didn't expect him to do it again for me at home. Nevertheless, this afternoon when I called to him and asked him to stand and walk to me and he actually did! Two small, but completely awesome and beautiful and inspiring little steps.

The best thing? That he knows he's achieved something. His smile when I grabbed him and kissed him all over said it all. He did it again for Daddy, and I suspect we'll have our hands full very soon!

Well done mister man!
