Yesterday (July 8, 2008), Cole took his first unassisted steps! Yikes!
After Cara got here, she was sitting in "the pen" playing with the babies and I was demonstrating how much my children love getting their picture taken. (Sure, when I am TRYING to get an official picture they aren't interested...) With my Cybershot camera, when you turn it on, it makes a nice little chime sound. Whatever the triplets are doing, when they hear it, they turn and smile.
And Cole didn't disappoint. Sure enough, I turn on the camera, he looks up, smiles, I snap a picture. And then...then he decides to take his very first step from the little play table over to the side of "the pen". So, I may not have captured his first step, but I caught the moment he thought about it!
After our little celebration, I attempted to find the video camera and failed. I finally settled on using my cellphone. (So I apologize from the graininess.) To coax Cole to walk, I put his little airplane just out of reach. And again, he performed...
It may not look like much to you. But it's definitely a step...and he did it multiple times!
By the way, this also marks a first for me - I figured out how to post a video!
