Walking makes all the difference

Henry first walked on Mother's Day.

Jack suddenly saw him differently. He was an equal, a playmate, a buddy. Before Henry was walking Jack saw him as simply the baby. Now he refers to Henry as "My best friend" or "My brother."

It's amazing to me how one change in Henry can change everything for Jack.

p.s. Happy Birthday to me!

It is true that when babies start to walk, other small children start to see them as equals and a play partner. I've seen it with my 10 nieces and nephews and 3 children. That was always the change that had the newly walking baby accepted into the play group of the others.

And Happy Birthday!!!!
