Another big event for Eli (that technically happened at his 15 month check up in December) is he finally left the <5th% for weight! That's right he is now in the 10th%. I'll take it!
He also learned several new tricks, like how to climb up on tables, and how to push chairs over to other things he would like to climb up on. He learned how to climb up and down an entire flight of stairs. (That one he didn't actually have to learn I just saw him do it one day.) He learned how to push himself on Addi's little princess push bike, and he zooms around the house as fast as he can and the kid can turn on a dime. (video to come of this later) Who needs to walk when you can ride a bike?
And drum roll please.....just a little one....he took his first steps! On January 24, 2013 he took about 3 steps between me and Jared in Addi's room. It was actually the same spot that Addi took her first steps (at 18 months old....what is wrong with my kids?) When that day came I was sure he would be walking by the end of January, but nope. He takes several steps now but only when he feels like it, otherwise he'll walk pushing a stroller or shopping. I've even seen him stand up and walk from Addi's bed to toy kitchen, like 10 steps, but nope still not walking. Guess I'll give him a little more time.
