Joshua’s Learning to Walk!

A special thank you to Christopher for the photos (except for the last two, which I grabbed today).

Joshua walks along walls, cupboards, chairs – anything he can get a hold of. He loves peeking around the corner when he knows there is someone there to play with him. In the past few days, Joshua’s started to walk a bit all by himself.

Happy July 1st! 😉

Joyfully His,

Here he comes!
This time he came around a little more subdued than normal.
But when I (Christopher) was talking to him and waved my hand, he had something to say as well.
Then I opened the closet door so I could “peek” around that at him – and was able to get a photo of his “coming around the corner look”.
Falling down can be fun when you’re little.
Mommy was around the corner helping make the session fun and playful, as well as getting him back around the corner out of sight each time (we did a number of run-throughs).
After a while he got a little tired and climbed up into her lap.
All set and ready to play some more!


Joshua has such joy!


“A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance…”
Proverbs 15:13
