Alexander walked unassisted for the first time this afternoon!
There is a short (13 second) video on the web of him taking not quite his first steps.
Sadly I missed the very first time he did it because I was putting the
cover back on his car seat – although he has recently taken two steps
and then stopped when standing up so it could be said that he has
walked already, but today is really the first day that he has properly
Anyway the afternoon has mostly been taken up with
getting him to walk backwards and forwards between Tracy and me. The
bit that wasn’t doing that was getting the video into a usable format
for the web and making sure the grandparents could watch it.
