Nathan decided that since he STILL doesn’t get an allowance he would have to get creative with his birthday gifting this year. For my 31st birthday, I received a toddler! He still won’t just stand up and walk on his own, but once he is standing (with me or Mike) he will walk across the living room to the other parent.
He’s been teetering on the brink of bipedalism for weeks now; I think it was nice of him to finally get over his fears and start this new stage on my birthday. Now I can buy myself another birthday present — baby gates and anti-baby cupboard locks.
