A day out for a walk through some beautiful big trees and along the coast, it finally wasn’t raining. And wouldn’t you know Callum slept through the entire thing – all two hours.

Into town and he was awake and happy to be there.  Especially to be going for a walk with Grandma and Beasley.

Just a couple steps after this photo was taken and Callum fell flat on his face. No hands out, nothing. A scrape all down the right side of his face was the result – and a very scared, upset, hurt little boy. I hadn’t put his feet all the way down into his shoes, and he tripped.

You know, having been a parent for a year I kind of was feeling that I was getting the hang of things. We had a routine going, Gareth and I had our strengths and our jobs and we were rolling along. And then Danger man has to change everything up with learning to walk! There is always going to be something new to throw me a curve ball, to keep me on my toes, to keep things interesting. Today it’s walking…soon it will be talking! Eek.

Luckily, even on the other side of the world, my mamma was ready to reassure me that things are going just fine.
