This is an expression of determination. Actually, it’s an expression that’s saying, “hey mom, give me your hand already!” as I back up further and further tricking him into walking towards me. Desmond has finally taken some serious strides (har-har) towards being a walking boy, but he still prefers to hold on to furniture, walls, or our hands while practicing.
His consecutive steps are becoming more frequent now and John and I have been trying really hard to capture one of his tears on video still to no avail. I did however have my regular camera handy today and captured this series. Keep it up kiddo!
