There are so many firsts in a young child’s life; the first smile, the first word and the first steps. These milestones are highly anticipated and embraced by parents universally with great celebration. Every parent will remember the first time their baby looked into their eyes with recognition and love and an uninhibited smile spreading across their face. Gold.
But babies are not babies for long. In the blink of an eye they grow up, and quite literally, stand up! My three “babies” were all eager to get moving. They didn’t want to sit back and observe the world around them; they wanted to be amongst the action, and in fact creating the action (read: distraction) with great enthusiasm. I remember when my first-born started crawling and climbing; an experienced mum said to me, “Nothing is sacred in your house anymore.” And boy was she right!
There’s nothing quite like seeing your baby take their first wobbly steps: the trial and error, the frustration, the intense determination and the beaming sense of satisfaction when they achieve those much-desired steps. It opens up a whole new world for them, and creates an entirely new world for parents. One that involves danger assessment and risk management!
I loved watching each of my babies master the crawling, climbing and walking stages. They each had a slightly different variation on those first moves, but they all walked before they turned one, turning my house upside down.
Do you have a little one on the verge of taking his or her first steps? If you do, you might want to take advantage of an exciting opportunity to sample a new shoe, hot off the press.
