Guess who?

Guess who else is Walking with Whymommy?


Little Bear!  8 months old, and he’s already a walking/cruising machine.  He’s been walking (with the support of Whymommy or Whydaddy’s hands) for almost a month now, but he’s independently cruising along Granddad’s train table and his piano/exersaucer now, and it’s wonderful.

Today, he crawled for the first time too.  One knee in front of the other.  He got it.

I couldn’t be prouder.  Yes, all babies walk, and yes, all babies crawl.  But you know what?  All mamas are proud.  Including me.

Other Walkers for Whymommy:  Sob’ah My Soul, Jessica at It’s My Life, Laugh if you Must, and Candy Girl Flies!  Chana, Jessica and Matt and their kids, my cousins, and my mother-in-law are walking with me in the Baltimore walk next month!

And who’s Writing with Whymommy? 

ParentDish!  ParentDish published a great article on IBC over the weekend!  This article didn’t list the majority of the symptoms or indications, but it DID point out that there’s another kind of breast cancer out there, and that an important symptom is a CHANGE in the appearance of the skin of the breast.  Good.  Very good.  And thanks for the link, guys!

Check out the newest members of Team WhyMommy on its new page here, and the first posts for Breast Cancer Awareness Month here.  Thanks and hugs to Eastowners, who gave me the Nice Matters Award last week!  How sweet!

And this.  From Canape.  Words fail me.

    OH he is too cute! And clearly very advanced to be walking so young! 🙂
    My daughter, who was born 8/04, and my son, born 9/06, will be “walking” (meaning pushed in a stroller) with Matt and I too–hopefully we will see you there!

  2. Mine’s 5 months and doing that funny little butt in the air “shake your diaper in the air like you just don’t care” thing. 🙂 Yay for walking!

    God he’s gorgeous!!

    And aren’t the internets cool?!

  5. I was hoping you would post updated boy pictures. I keep seeing their baby faces on your blog and wondering what they look like now. Little Bear is so joyful and ahead of the game. A runner like your brother perhaps?

  14. He always looks so wonderfully happy, your Little Bear!

  15. I just tried to comment on your Facebook post but I couldn’t. Is it me or are your comments deactivated?

    Aww, he looks so proud of himself in that picture! Love it!

    Also – I just looked at the Team WhyMommy page, and it is overwhelming. I scrolled and read the numbers and scrolled and my heart swelled. You have started something incredible, WhyMommy!

    Hi WhyMommy! I love the picture – what a doll! I don’t know your email address and I just wanted to let you know that I have a special post inspired by your post about Facebook’s ban on breastfeeding pictures. Thank you shouting out MLJ – I haven’t been there before. Love it!
    Thank you so much for the inspiration I feel every time I read your posts.

  18. Carrie says:

    Yeah for your little walker! And all the other successes life is throwing at you – keep ’em coming!
