pitter patter of little feet

well, the day I've been dreading came last week. I can't believe I've been suck a slacker that I didn't post about Nate's first step for a week! Last Monday (4 days before he turned 10 months old) Nate took his first step when Kathleen came over to drop Elara off. I couldn't believe it. I mean, yeah he's been standing on his own pretty well lately, but I didn't think that he would be taking steps so soon. I mean, he wasn't even 10 months old yet!
He hasn't done it much since then, but he is standing and looking like he wants to walk. He gets all excited and tenses up like he's going to take a step, then he bends his knees so he's in a crouch, then he stands back up again. And he keeps that up until he finally falls back to his knees and crawls around again. It is so cute.
I just can't believe how big Nate is getting all of a sudden. I mean, my baby is growing into a little man.

This Sunday we gave Nate his FIRST HAIRCUT!!!!! Dan was getting tired of the mohawk that Nate sported everytime his hair got wet. And the crazy bedhead he was waking up with. So, I finally gave in.

"What is this strange buzzing sound near my head?"

"Why is my hairs on the floor?"

He's a handsome little man boy now. He looks more like a little boy than a baby boy and it's breaking my heart! I love seeing him so big and seeing all the things he can do now that he couldn't do a few months ago. But at the same time, I kind of miss the baby phase. He's just growing waaaay to fast.
