Up and Moving

By Renee Harvey

Ten months has certainly been exciting for Wesley…and a new adventure for mom and dad. Between mastering crawling and getting really close to walking, he is finally able to explore this great big world around him.

Last week, we brought his new walker to the backyard so he could really experience some independence. He’s always loved being outside and, like most kids, is fascinated by all the sounds and movement. It didn’t take him long to realize he could now go wherever he wanted, and he was thrilled! I let him take the lead and gave him words for the things he was touching or gesturing toward. He was able to experience opposites, colors and movement all for himself.

In the end, despite all the fun new things in the yard, his favorite thing to go after was his current best friend – our dog!
