Another one walking

Well, my little guy is now officially a walker. He started walking a few steps here and there, a little before Christmas, but since about Friday or Saturday, he's become a lot more stable on his feet and walking a lot more. He'll walk from one end of the room to the other with no problem. It's so cute to seem him do it. I'm so proud to seem him walk. At the same time though, I'm still a little sad. Probably because he's our last, and it's the last time we'll go through this milestone with our kids. I think this is one of the hardest part of being a parent. You want to see them grow and reach milestones, but at the same you don't want it to go so fast, and in your heart they will always that baby you brought home from the hospital. I might be a little sad to see all three of my kids grow up so fast, but at the end of the day, I'm having fun seeing them grow up.

It is sad to a point but now you have a toddler and you can do so much more with them. I was a toddler teacher and I loved that job so much for too many reasons to name here.

I know the same feeling. It was so sweet to see my kids take their first steps , and watch them grow, but now they are adults and all of that time as babies are gone.

That is certainly true. There are certainly positive aspects of him starting to walk. I will enjoy it.

There are so many emotions and things involved with being a parent. I never quite understood all the things involved until I had my kids.

It is truly both happy and sad at the same time. Almost 33 years since I brought my oldest home and I can still remember feeding him for the very first time

It is a wonder to watch kids when they are that young because everything is so new and exciting to them. I'm sure your youngest will be exploring and getting into things now that he's more mobile.

Feeding them for the first time, bringing them home from the hospital, walking, those are the memories that stays. As happy and sad as we may feel sometimes, at least we have those memories to hang on too.

It really is nice to watch. I'm enjoying it as much as I enjoyed watching his two sisters starting to walk. It's nice to see him explore and slowly starting to get into things. It's great.

Well our youngest turned 40 her last birthday! The best joys of being a parent is definitely watching your child grow to adulthood and beyond. They are truly blessings.
