Gabriel Walking on His First Birthday

Gabriel walks for the camera. He's been walking more and more every day, learning very quickly for the last three weeks. He took his first unassisted steps on the 25th of November and now he seems to be walking more than he is crawling. … [Read more]

First Steps

Gabriel, you took two and a half steps. You were methodical. You knew what you were doing. And then a few minutes later you took three more. Then a half an hour later you took 2 more. You are walking today, no assistance, and while it seems no big … [Read more]

The Keyboard

Gabriel used to pound on the keyboard while I was trying to work. The dest is low and he likes to stand up and watch me type. I would constantly move his hand away every time he did this, and try not to snap at him when he screwed up what I was … [Read more]

I couldn't get it on video. Every time I tried he stopped of course. That's what baby's do. But he bear crawled today. Took 8 steps on his hands and feet. It was very cool and weird to watch. He is at the bathtub fussing that he doesn't get to … [Read more]

One Foot, One Knee Crawl

For a couple of days Gabriel was doing this one foot ready move while he crawled. It made it easier to stand or sit when ever he felt like it. … [Read more]
