Our boy’s officially a toddler now – no more crawling for this young man. We’ve been getting him as much walking exercise as we can, and today was a great day for it.
It was a chilly, windy, blustery February day – not the greatest weather the planet has ever seen, but then, this is London, so what do you expect – but there was some sunshine, so we bundled up the little man and took him for a stroll around the block and a little bit into the nearby woods. He absolutely loved it; he loved the feeling of being (sort of) independent, looking at the birds, feeling the flowers, holding Mommy’s hand, checking out the WWII tank that sits in the driveway of a house around the corner. (Yeah, a WWII tank. Don’t ask; we haven’t the foggiest). He got a little tired every now and again, given that he has tiny little legs so every adult step is like three or four steps for him; we’d carry him for a bit before he demanded to be put back down for more walking. He’s really getting good at it!
For our overseas viewers, I made sure that, while filming, I did a 360 pan so you could see what our street looks like. It’s a fairly typical street in a small English town, I’d say (no, we don’t live in a small town, but the neighborhood we live in definitely has more of a small town than big city feel to it).
