It was a big milestone day for my son. He took his first steps across the living room floor between me and my wife today, without holding on to anything. He walked like a drunk zombie, but he did it. He didn't seem to understand what all the cheering was about, but he grinned anyway because mommy and daddy were acting like such giddy fools.
It doesn't seem that long since he couldn't even crawl. Already, I feel the sands of time slipping through my fingers. Tomorrow, I'll be standing on the sidewalk waving goodbye as he drives off to college, and I'll wonder where my charming little boy disappeared off to.
