I know that while all of you were sipping/downing your coffee/tea this morning, you were overcome with the nagging sensation of a burning question that you just couldn’t quite put your finger on. What is it? You kept wondering…what is that I’m trying to figure out here?
Well look no further my friends. I’m sure that feeling was just your desire to know whether or not Asher has taken his long awaited first steps! Hmm? What’s that? You just remembered that actually Drew and I and maybe a few select grandparents are the only ones spending time over the rim of a mug pondering this? Surely not! I’m sure that you’re all just desperate to see what’s happening in the world of biped-dom at Casa Walton. Well far be it for me to keep this vital piece of information from you, so without further ado, I will tell you that Asher has taken his first steps…
He walks between us, though he’s still not doing a lot of standing on his own (read: any?) and he’s not really initiating going from squatting/sitting to walking/standing, but he has taken steps on his own and I’m rolling with it.
Watch out Carl Lewis! (And quick shout out to babies in striped one pieces. How old do you have to be before people start calling these outfits unitards?)

Amelia, you must have ESP because this is exactly what I was thinking as I sipped my morning coffee! Thanks so much for the update – I love his sweet smiling face and seeing these milestones across the miles.
hahaha, Ash…I just knew it! 😉 Miss ya’ll!!
Wonderful! He looked like he was having a great time, too (Gracie also looked jealous). If you haven’t tried lace up shoes, it might give him the support he “feels” he needs. 😀
These are exciting days for you all!
I am sooo excited for this weekend! His first steps! AHHHH so exciting
love it! tessa and i watched together and she actually said “asher” a few times. miss you guys; we’ll be down this weekend- if you want to get together give me a call!
Just look at Asher go! He is having such a good time walking ~ and really making hay there toward the end! Gittin’ it and grinning all along.
Such an amazing milestone. I think it has been my favourite one (it it tough to pick just one)… it was such a big deal and I remember everyone being excited about it. Just like you guys. I really love this milestone and smile every time I see a baby reach it. Kisses to Mr. Walkitee-walk-walk.
