Well it happened! Leo did it! He started walking while we were in Israel :( and :) all at the same time. So at about 10 months he took his first steps, and now a month later he is cruising pretty well. He is most certainly "unstable" but he is cruisin'. It is tough now that it is cold out b/c he is always in footie pj's or in socks and that makes for interesting walking on our tile kitchen floor.
We are fortunate to live 2 1/2 blocks from the zoo and have a zoo memebership, and with the membership comes special invitations to zoo events. On Friday we went to a winter warming at the zoo event. It was at from 5:30 - 7:30pm and they had hot chocolate, cookies, Christmas lights, and some of the animals out for viewing. Leo appreciated the warmth that the lodge provided and he LOVED Frosty.
He also loved the baboons! They kept charging him. He laughed. The video isn't great sorry :)
Below is a video of Miguel and Leo hanging together. Leo loves his big brother and is learning all sorts of stuff :)
