I'm sorry that I've been away from the blog so much the last week and a half or so. We've been busy. I'll post about everything in the next couple of days. But instead of waiting to post this until I backtracked, I thought I would just go ahead and post it tonight.
I expressed my concern to Mandy while she was here last week that I hadn't taught Robby to clap because (this is sad) it never occurred to me that I needed to do that! I don't really clap a lot for him, so I never even thought to teach him this important skill! It took Mandy one time of straightening his hands and clapping his hands together for him to get it! Now, he's doing it all the time. I will just look over at him while he's playing and he'll be clapping. I can't help but smile at him when I see it! Here is a video I got of him today clapping.
Also, over the last several days, he has started walking just holding on to one of my fingers with him leading and setting his pace. He's also standing for longer periods of time on his own. I know walking on his own is right around the corner, I'm just not ready for him to grow up that much yet! Crawling is one thing. That's a baby thing. Walking is a toddler thing. I don't want to think of him as a toddler yet! Enjoy this video of him walking, too!
