William is taking steps in more ways than one.
Walking - with still slightly tottering steps- is now his preferred method of locomotion, and even when he tumbles, he now picks himself up instead of finishing the journey with a crawl. I am sure it will not be long before he is running away from us to tease us!!
He is also taking firm steps in his discovery of the world around him. He goes in search of toys rather than waiting for them to be dangled in front of him. And the words are starting to come, with "dog" and "boo" being his current favourites.
I am mainly posting these pictures for his other grandparents in New Zealand. Although they get to spend some quality time with their first and only grandchild when Kim goes to visit for a week or two, it is not the same as seeing the day-to-day progress.
Playing Peep-bo with the clown toy is currently his favourite game at Granny's
Books are a firm favourite - it doesn't matter if they are upside down!
When you have finished playing, it is good to settle down to a sleepy cuddle with grandad!
