Well, Israel took his own sweet time starting to walk, much to my surprise since he was my earliest crawler! I guess these little ones just like to keep us guessing!
Anyway, a couple days ago he took off, at 13.5 months old. :) No slow build-up here! Once he decided to go for it, he was off! And SO proud of himself to be such a big boy! It totally made his whole day - he was just so happy with himself!
Look at him go!
So excited about his progress!
What a happy little guy! He is such a joy to have around!
Maybe this would be an appropriate place to include one of Joshua's recent comments about Israel.....
A few weeks ago, Joshua said to me with such a happy face, "Mommy, it is such a blessing to have Israel in our family! He helps us a lot! He cleans all the garbage off the floor so we dont even have to!"
Hehe, who needs a dog? LOL! Joshua was not being sarcastic at all - he was totally serious! I dont even think he knows how to be sarcastic.... :)
And a video clip of the action:
