Being a father is a wild ride. My name is Christopher & these are my observations, theories & comments on life as the dad of my two boys Ripley & Jayden. I write this to air my thoughts & update my friends & family with photos, videos and such like. For everyone else I offer hints and tips on parenting as I learn them. For legal reasons I make no direct reference to my employer or any of my colleagues.

Progress Update_: More Walking
Well, he is 11 months and 9 days old and he is getting pretty good at walking, the record so far is about 8 steps before falling over laughing and clapping. We cheer him all the way and he likes the attention.
Helping a baby take his first steps is a lot like setting a slinky spring toy off down a flight of stairs, sometimes it will do a few steps, then other times it makes it all the way down to the bottom. You get that same feeling of enormous satisfaction when he makes it from one side of the room to the other. Also you can tell it really boosts his confidence with every single step.
