Walks To Remember…

Finally, FINALLY, I got it on video!

Although Clark took his first steps well over a month ago, he’s been tough to catch on camera. You see, Clark has a stubbornness "independent spirit" about him (wonder where he got it?), so he has practiced walking on his own terms and timing.  Just as he started to get quick on his feet, my camera battery bit the dust, and was replaced today.

Side Note: To answer a reoccurring question, we own a Casio Exilim point-and-shoot camera (which I also use for short video clips) and a Nikon D40 DSLR. I love them both!

We couldn’t be prouder of our sweet miracle. And now for his much anticipated footage:

 

Here’s our "Walks to Remember" over the last five months…

Brooks was 1st…

Followed Closely by Henry

Isaac Claiming Bronze…

And Clark’s Instant Replay…

Puts a rest to the "Wait ‘Til Their Walking!" remarks that we’ve been hearing since birth! =)

    way to go Clark! I noticed you had a monkey climbing on the chair behind you, too! ha!

    My guy walked on his knees like that forever! We swore he was never going to walk upright…but finally! Have fun keeping up, Mom!

    That was too sweet, Jenn! I think it’s so neat the the identicals were the 1st and 4th to walk. Just goes to show how different their personalities are and how truly unique each one of those miracles are.

    Looking forward to getting to that stage. The Graf quads are just starting to crawl right now and are keeping us running. Gotta get a gate, gotta get a gate!

    Love from KS,
    Moni

    Way to go, Clark! Of course I got a good laugh out of seeing your little monkey on the chair on the background too… Don’t you just LOVE this age??

    Hope you’re all still healthy and loving this sunny weather!
