Though it is not quite on a par with the proclamation of a royal wedding, today I would like to announce that my son, aged 16 months, finally took his first steps.
Hooray! They were a long time coming, but worth the wait. Clearly he is now the cleverest little boy ever to have walked upon this earth.
There has also been a development with Gertie. She has decided that only Daddy has the necessary skill and power to wipe her bottom after a poo.
I'm celebrating this one with equal satisfaction.
