Mountain View Mommy: Sand, Trucks and Testosterone

Justin has evolved from using 4 limbs, to using 2.   He is now completely walking all the time.   To him there is no other way to travel…. not in a stroller…. not in a car seat… not on his knees… not in my arms.  He wants to WALK.

I am still not used to him toddling around the corner with his arms in the air for balance.   I will be standing in another room, and he will just come on over to see me, turn around, and take off again in the other direction.  The control it takes to pull that off is amazing.  Seriously, to be able to stop when you want, turn fully around, continue walking, and change directions while doing so… that is difficult stuff when you have never done it before.

He has no regard for things in his way, he bulldozes through them.  Doesn’t matter if there are toys, he will step on them.  And when it comes to a wall or table, if that is his targeted destination, he will slam right into it without slowing down.  He is a walking disaster waiting to happen, and yet, he rarely falls or cries.   It’s crazy.

What is even more amazing is the pure excitement all over his face anytime he goes somewhere.  He is always so pleased with himself.  Often it results in maniacal laughing and crazy grinning.  I love it.  It’s sure to make you smile.

  1. It is nice to see this happy little guy under his own steam on two feet. He sure has a harty laugh.
