Mr. Independent

About 2 1/2 weeks ago, Riley began walking on his own. He would take a few steps and then fall...take a few steps and fall...etc. While we were gone to Glorieta for a week he got better, but it wasn't until this past week that he really started walking for long periods of time on his own. Now that he feels more comfortable with it and a bit more confident, when offered a hand to hold while walking, he pushes it away as if to say, "I don't need that! I'm an independent man!" :) I was definitely a strong-willed, independent child (or so I'm told by my mom!), and the older Riley gets, the more I see that emerging from his little body. What's that saying? "What goes around comes around?" Mom, it's coming back around to me. :) Here's the little guy showing off his stuff...
