First Steps -- And Hasn't Stopped Running Since

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

My son Andrew has so many funny and memorable stories from his Gymboree play classes. Unfortunately, I missed the most memorable one -- him walking for the first time, the day he turned 13 months old. The morning of his Play & Learn class, before I left for work, he took a step away from the TV stand he was holding onto. When I got to work I told my mother that I thought he was going to start really walking any day. Later that day my husband called to tell me that he spoke with our babysitter and she was super excited -- one minute, Andrew was sitting on the mat at Gymboree Play & Music, and the next minute he got himself up, and ran across the room. Of course I was devastated that I missed it. As I was heading home, I called my husband and let him know I was on my way. I walked up the stairs to my apartment building and through the glass doors I saw my little man come running to me in the hallway....it was one of the best moments I have had with him since he was born, and I have been chasing him ever since!
