Yesterday afternoon the rain stopped and the skies began to clear. We dropped in for afternoon tea with our dear friends the Durrington’s. This was the result…… an afternoon full of fun!!
Andrew and I have been assisting Ben to his feet. We have been doing the ‘walk to Mummy’ and ‘walk to Daddy’ around the house. We also have a pebbley driveway which Ben does not like to crawl on. Everyday we head out onto it with all his push toys to encourage walking. So for about a week now Ben has been happy to take a few steps here and there. But yesterday Benjamin took some steps away from home……. YAY, YAY,YAY. I can hardly contain my excitement. We were next door with the Durrington’s and Benjamin walked to Ryan. It was only about five steps but he did it on his own. It was really to get to the trampoline but he also adores Ryan, Finlay and Charlotte. Somehow I don’t think this means he is officially on his feet but it is ‘A FEW STEPS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!!!’
