A List Maker's Life: Baby Steps

Baby Steps

Each tentative step forward requires great effort and great encouragement in return.

Finding an appropriate motivator could possibly make all the difference in the world.

A stumble leaves us clamoring for the familiar.
And while the familiar may be faster and more comforable, it may also paralyze progress.

The occassional slip and fall may require reassurance and a hug, yet we must not let it keep us from trying again.

With sufficient practice each day brings more confidence than the day before.

Where are your baby steps taking you?
Where do you hope to go?

Disclaimer: Please excuse my amateur video uploading skills. My next step will have to be to learn how to rotate video. Also apologizing here for the super squeaky, high pitched momma voice I've subjected you to if you've taken the time to click on our videos. And finally, if you've seen one you've seen them all (unless you're the Gram)!


  1. FANTASTIC!!!!

  2. Yeah Gibby! The first of thousands of places those feet will take you. Now as evidence of today, be careful on those stairs!

  4. What a cutie pie! I love how he is walking to a spatula in the first video.....forget toys,lol!
    Why do we get that high pitched voice?
    It must be what our babes respond too. Thanks for sharing such precious moments!

  5. It's always wonderful to see little ones taking the first steps toward independence.
