Last night I was telling Paul about James' little friend, Becca (who is the same age as James) and how she's been taking 5-6 steps at a time lately. Her mom (my friend, Kristin--Hi, Kristin!) was telling me yesterday about how they were playing the "walk back and forth between Mommy and Daddy" Game the night before.
Paul and I happened to be sitting on the floor of our living room with James at the time, so I jokingly picked up James and said, "Hey, you want to play that game too, James?" I set him down next to me, and he--I'm not kidding--walked to Paul! We were so shocked! We burst out cheering and laughing so loud that it kinda scared James. Oops. ;) It was only three steps, but he has never even successfully taken one step, so we were rather surprised.
It really was a fluke. James doesn't have anywhere near the balance needed to walk. We kept trying to get him to do it again, with absolutely no luck. Oh, but it was funny. :)
