Robert Takes His First Steps

Last week on February 1, 2011, Robert took his first steps!

Recently he has been standing up for longer periods, so we knew it would just be a matter of time.

Robert is just over 10 months old. At this age, he acts relatively fearless- without hesitation crawling into new situations or under new objects. He enjoys listening to music and sometimes dancing. He loves his brother Jason and enjoys playing with him or watching him, but is learning when to give Jason some space. Robert is very fond of shouting, “Ga-ga-ga!”  or “Ya-ya-ya!” although Hristina says it is “Da-da-da!”

With Robert becoming more adventurous and mobile, we have had to do some extra baby proofing. Recently he started crawling up the stairs- now we have a gate at the bottom.
