Joshua is now 11 months old. He is almost walking! It is so joyous and exciting to watch a baby take their first steps, but this time it makes me teary-eyed too! I took Joshua to the store to buy him his first pair of shoes, I put them on him, and he stood up. He looked like such a big boy, I started to cry and left the store! My baby is . . . almost walking and . . . shoe-less!
