Removing the chicken feathers...

Strange title? Yep. But I have been saying it for a while now and it's all about Cameron! LOL!! This kid has been pulling himself up and cruising the furniture from about 8 months old. He. Just. Won't. Take. A. Step! hee hee... So I have been telling everyone, that I am plucking the chicken feathers off of him so he is brave enough to take his first few steps. *sheesh!*


But then again, why would he start walking when he has a good thing going on! :D

His sister and two brothers will do anything for him. All Cam has to do is point his chubby, regal finger, give a grunt, and they are all off and racing to see who will get what he wants first! It's fantastic that they all love and adore him. There is certainly no sibling rivalry here...........yet! But how do I remove that royal crown of his and literally put him on his feet?!


Last week he has started to realise that walking on two feet is better than crawling (granted, at almighty fast speeds). Liam has been really encouraging this by letting Cameron hold his fingers as they go walk-about! Now Ethan wants to get in on the act! LOL! Trouble is, Ethan has no where near the height that Liam does, and Ethan and Cam often tumble over. Back to square one.


He was showing progress though. Again, during last week he started to put some confidence into those legs of his and stand by himself, give or take, for about 10 seconds. Until I got all excited and started jumping around yelling "Good boy!!" hee hee... Couldn't help myself! Cam of course loves the attention and now we are at a free standing time of about 30 seconds. :D

So, no walking yet. But this is where we are at. And I wanted to document the progress of the process. IYKWIM! What better place to share than here.


So, if anyone asks, I'm still plucking at his feathers. And yes, I do know that he will get there in his own time. :) I'm just enjoying the humour of the situation. Cheeky boy.
