At day care today, Alex "walked" all the way from the living room, through the dining room, to the kitchen entry way by moving from furniture to wall to furniture. Claudia said that she and Edwin just stood there and stared in disbelief. He's been slowly cruising for a few weeks now -- since just after Christmas. He also -- apparantly freakishly soon after figuring out how to stand up -- has already figured out how to lower himself down again without falling. It's not always perfect, and he's not always steady on his feet, but he does it. According to BabyCenter, these are all developmental steps that the typical nine month old may be hitting at this time.

This little man is going to astound you for sure... you walked independently at 7 months and he is that age now so look out! Me thinks he is going to be progressing too fast for your mental health!!!! Hang in there Mommy....he is on a roll! Nani

As the mother of the cutest baby girl on the whole planet (or so everyone tells me) I just have to say that Alex is the cutest little boy. Go Alex! I can't believe how smiley he is every time you take a picture. You must be doing something right. Maybe it's all that milk:) (I read your post on the other page.) Just wait until he's 18 months and still nursing. It just keeps getting better and better.
