Running from the Law: Taking a Stroll

Taking a Stroll

Now that the weather is finally starting to get nice, it's been so much fun taking Mac outside to play.  He's about this close to walking on his own!  I can't even get over it.  These photos were taken a few weeks ago (a couple days before we got 12+ inches of snow!), so he's not getting around nearly as well as he does now, but this is pretty cute nonetheless.  I can't believe the improvement he's made in just a few short weeks with both walking and steering his walker.  I'm confident that he'll be walking (or running) on his own by his first birthday.  This little VTech walker has been his favorite toy for months now!  He has really gotten a lot of use out of this thing.  He pushes it all around the house, uses it to chase (or run over) the dogs and loves ramming it into our walls.  When we finally had a nice day, we were so excited to take him outside and let him walk on our street/sidewalk where he could just go go go without running into anything.  

And he's off! 

Look at that concentration.

I'm coming for you, mom.

This is awesome!

Our dogs were at the front door watching, so Mac had to stop and wave to them.

Hi puppies!

Guess what...I'm outside!

Love the butt shot.

Is this not the cutest thing ever?

  1. These pictures are so adorable!! Jackson is really enjoying this weather as well. He LOVES being outside. :-)

  2. He looks JUST like you. What a preshy!!!

  3. Love the bum shots too, especially because Daddy is in the background looking so excited! Adorable.
    And I love that he's in socks too ;)

  4. So stinkin' cute!!

  5. He's too cute! What a fun and exciting stage :)

  6. Omgosh.. Go Mac Go! How old is he now?! I can't keep up. I love the booty shot! I am obsessed with baby butts


  7. So cute! I cannot believe he's almost walking already.

  8. Geeeeeeeeeeez, he's SO ADORABLE!!! The waving pictures really made me smile! So sweet.

  9. Look how happy he is!
    Waving to the puppies?! Oh my gosh, too much cuteness.

  10. SOOOO Cute!! Love all his expressions!

  11. Too cute! Love his big grin! (And omg is that not the most obnoxious toy ever? We have an older version of it - maybe they've tamed it down since then - but I swear it just does. not. shut. up. You think it's done singing and it's like, "LET'S PLAY! LET'S PLAY!" NO.)

  12. so absolutely precious! he has the best facial expressions!

  13. Ok, I die, he looks JUST like you in all of these! He so has your expressions--kills me! I absolutely cannot wait to see you two!

  14. So so cute! Hayden just started this too and I absolutely love watching his wobbly little legs walk behind that thing :)

  15. This is precious! I found your blog from your wonderful breastfeeding post this morning on The Girl in Red Shoes...our little men are about the same age AND I loved this because we have the same walker that my Charlie is just getting used to playing with :) Love your blog!
