Andrew's first walk

Andrew and I took an early trip this morning to get Allie some Fall-appropriate clothes.  She's grown so much over the summer and only had one long sleeve shirt from Spring that remotely fit.  We got there only to realize the store didn't open for another half hour, so we went for a walk around a nearby pond to pass the time.  Andrew loved it.  He walked about a quarter mile by himself and was captivated by the ducks, geese, and fountains. 

It was so nice to spend some one-on-one time with him.  He's starting to understand (and follow!) instructions, which makes outings feel more manageable.  And while we go for long walks almost every day, this was the first time he wasn't in a stroller or a carrier.  I think it was a turning point and I'm looking forward to many more walks to come.
