We're gonna need a bigger boat

yikes

As of this morning, Josh is mobile. After nearly 10 days of frustration, he went from being only able to take three or four crawling "steps" to being unstoppable.

Early this morning, we were playing on the floor in the living room. He got himself on his hands and knees and started moving toward the kitchen. I expected him to do what he's done for the past week or so, move three or four steps and either slide back into a seated position or fall on his belly and yell for me to grab him.

Instead, he took eight or nine steps, looked back to see if I was coming and scooted to the kitchen.

And like that, my life is turned upside-down. Again.

It's both amazing and scary at the same time. The kid could barely get himself on all four two weeks ago. Now I'm running around the house all day trying to keep him from breaking something (or himself).
