10 months 10 days old ~ Gabriel's first steps.
(His first steps were actually about 5 minutes earlier but I didn't have the camera out because I wanted to be fully present. I'm trying to work on things like that ;))
Now that's he's taken his first steps he can relax and just chill for a while. Jessica didn't take off and proper walk for another month. hahaha
Honestly I doubt he would have been that interested in walking if Jessica had stayed in bed like she was supposed to. He loves making her laugh, giggle, squeal, scream.... you name it. Attention from his sister in any way shape or form makes his world go round.
He also figured out how to push our make-shift baby gate out of the way for clear access to the stairs. Proper baby gate arrives tomorrow.
For now it's like we're just piling anything we can into the barricade. 24 more hours of this required, totally secure right? [UPDATE: Not even this configuration is besting the beast. He slides the chair and then moves the cube like a finely practiced tetris move. oh why oh why did I not spring for 1 day shipping?]
