Just Another Ho-Hum Night at the Yoys

At least I thought it was.

I was on schedule to have everyone to bed by 7.

I was going to cook dinner and blog.  Or maybe not blog, as nothing super interesting happened today.  Shocking, I know.

I had both boys in Big E's room.

Clothes were off.

Diaper was off.

Little E was playing with the police station currently housed in Big E's room.  He looked up at me and smiled.

Then he did something so amazing it brought me to tears.

He stood up.  For the first time.  On his own.  But that wasn't all.

In all his naked, baby glory he took three or four steps towards me with the biggest, proudest grin on his face.

I was so shocked.  Did that just happen?

I scooped him up and hugged him.  He clapped.

Mr. Yoy was going to be sad that he missed this.

I pulled out my phone to get a good video of him walking.  And I did.  It was priceless.

I sent it out to a few friends and family as I thought a nudie baby video on FB would be crossing the line.  I do want Little E to love me when he grows out of his momma's boy stage.

Mr. Yoy rushed home from work to see Little E walk in person.  After many failed attempts, Little E worked up enough nerve to walk a few more steps for his dad.

I'd like to point out that a week from today we have Little E's 18 month checkup that I was oh-so worried about.

When Dr. Yoy asks me if Little E is walking, I can honestly answer yes.

I am so relieved.

Thanks to Little E for getting with the walking program.
