Well, really not almost. Getting there, but slowly. He is still technically a crawler. Nick will take a few steps when prompted. He does seem to want to walk, but seeing as he gets over excited, and thus his head gets way out in front of his body when trying to walk, which then results in a crash, which then results in the comfort that he can just crawl and get there faster. He does really well when he doesn't "realize" he is actually walking.
Tonight, for instance, he was pushing around the dining room chairs, because, you know it is fun to re-arrange furniture. He got one stuck, and walked the two steps to the other by himself, with out realizing what he was doing.
I don't think it will be long before I am indoctrinated into the role of a "toddler mom", but for now, I am content with the happily crawling, thus slightly easier to keep up with,version of my little man.
