Dennis is Walking!

It really amazes me how much Dennis has progressed developmentally, physically, and emotionally since he has come home just 11 short days ago. Honestly, I expected him to take longer to catch up, and I was hoping that I would get to have a baby for at least a little while longer---- but alas that is not the case at all. I have a full fledged toddler!

He is just too cute. He looks very stable, too, considering he just started walking! I`m impressed.

Also, LOVE the fact that he was completely and utterly unphased by his big brother sweeping him across the room like that . . . just carried on like nothing had happened. lol. You can tell he`s already used to his big, happy family!

DENNIS IS WALKING?

at first i thought it was me trying to read at 5am (d.c. time), but after viewing the video, i am convinced what i thought i was reading is true!

it's so hard to believe that at month ago he was in an orphanage and now is a part of your family and catching up so quickly.

you are all blessed.

Wow indeed - amazing!!

Martha said...

He doesn't appear at all overwhelmed or overstimulated. I think maybe he has always dreamed of this day!

Salzwedel Family said...

Yeah Dennis!

Leah said...

Oh my gosh! I agree, clearly Dennis has been just WAITING for someone to give him the opportunity to develop! I'm amazed that he's walking already. The world has been waiting to welcome Dennis into it, and here he is!

Terri said...

Lucky Mom said...

Christine, how wonderful for him. He obviously just needed some love (and boy did he get it in your house!). I am so happy for you and your family.

Kathy said...

We had a very similar experience with Jameson. He was barely walking when we brought him home. Now he is running!!

Kelli said...

we have to be adults for so long, I have always wished the baby part would last a bit longer. Sham on you all for giving him so much love he is developing so fast. hehe. great job.

Carol said...

It brings tears to my eyes to see how he is flourishing in your loving home. With all the attention though, I am suprised his feet ever touched the ground long enough to learn to walk! ;)

Dan & Michelle said...

How wonderful!!! I absolutely love it!

MyGirlElena said...

Thank you so much for sharing these precious first steps on what promises to be a wonderful journey of exploration, learning, thriving, and life, thanks to Dennis's own determination, and your family's provision of opportunity...and love.

Most of all, love.

He is truly amazing and you guys are truly blessed to have such a wonderful little boy join your family. I am in awe everyday that I read your blog...I just love it!!

kristen said...

wow!! already! that's awesome! i love the fact that he was swept off his feet, replaced, someone ran in front of him, and he just went on about his business!! how cool is that?!!? i know what you mean about wishing you had a baby for a little longer, mine started walking the within two days of me having custody too - but it's neat to see them walk... and I agree, he is SO steady for having just started! way to go dennis!!
