Choose only one picture. That was my task for FFF this week. My camera has been clicking away like crazy, documenting several firsts this week, so choosing was hard! This week Colter went on his first zoo adventure, advanced to taking five or six unassisted steps at a time, had to say good-bye to the car that brought him home from the hospital (we sold it), stood up all by himself without pulling up on anything, was reunited with his best bud, Carter, who got to come home with good reports--whoo hoo!--amongst other photo opps. It was a busy picture week, but I decided on this one.
There are a few pictures that I like better (which I posted yesterday, if you're interested), but this was the best moment! Colter has been trying for months to stand up by himself--without using anything to pull up on. He always ended looking through his legs upside down, because he wasn't quite strong enough to get his upper body up while keeping his legs straight. His attempts were hilarious! While I was making dinner Tuesday, Colter suddenly stood up in the middle of the kitchen! The first time he did it, he was so excited he started clapping. He knew right then that he had finally accomplished what he'd been trying to do for months and he was proud of it! We clapped and celebrated with him. It was such a precious moment, and yipee! The camera was right on hand.
