Progress: stalled (edited)

It just occurred to me that Dawit's many walking toys may actually be hindering his independent walking progress. Duh, I know. Caroline never had any, so she had no choice but to let go and let 'er rip. D's gotten so accustomed to the support and has gotten so good turning corners...

...and pushing things that get in his way, that he's hesitant to let go. He can actually run with a walker, but he's only taken one step unsupported.

I'm not complaining at all. I know he'll get there. And it's fun to watch him navigate the plethora of toys in his way. Edited to add: If you're wondering about the kids' eclectic outfits (including my wool socks Dawit is wearing), we're about to go hiking in cold weather.

And when he gets tired, he rests.

I love the resting picture. He's on his own timetable. Your floors look good.

I just linked to your blog from Danielle's blog. My husband and I live in Greeneville. We are adopting a 3 year old little girl from China who we should travel for in Feb. Once we have our 1st post placement visit for her we plan to start paper chasing our next adoption from Ethiopia. We are so excited. You kids are super cute!

Oh I was not wondering about the outfits at all! Full winter gear/ballerina get up/Western riding attire can be seen at any time of day at our house! Seems like Dawit is growing so fast! Wish I could see him again!
