I recently was trying to figure out who Silas looks like. After finding a few childhood photos of me and Patrick at around 13 months of age, I created a line-up.
Patrick circa 1982. Silas circa 2013. Paige circa 1979.
One funny similarity is that we each had the funny hair flip on our left side.
This happened today…
Patrick and I got to witness his official first steps at home this evening. I had been worried that Silas would achieve this while Patrick was at work, so I purposely didn’t encourage him.
When Patrick arrived home today we were chatting and snacking in the kitchen when Silas reached out for a cracker. He was already standing when I held it in front of him. With a couple of shaky, shuffled steps he reached his prize and we were there to see it.
Silas has learned many new trick these past few months. Here is the latest.
