We're almost there, you guys!!! ONE! Things are SO much easier/better these days. Really really. Like I seriously didn't believe it would ever be easier. Anyway, there's also almost walking. I don't know if I'm completely scared of them walking or if I want it to happen sooner, but we're getting there with many careful steps every day. They're almost people!!!!! Ok, one random question. Any advice on first shoes? We have some hand-me-downs but I was thinking of getting some of those socks with attached rubber soles -- like the Skidders ones, any experience with something like that? And my little guy is a sock puller-offer.
