Beginning to walk and new shoes

Noah has been taking a couple steps for awhile now, but recently he's been taking more...5-10 together. I figured that it was probably time to get him some shoes since he loves walking outside too. My friend Julie and I went with our kiddos (her Eva is 3 months younger than Noah) to the Stride Rite store in Cabazon. We got each of them a new pair of sandals, so cute. I didn't find a good sporty shoe for Noah...I'm a little picky. I'm still on the look out for some good tennies and a pair of good flip-flops...I saw some reefs online today, I just have to make sure his chubby feet will fit. :) Here is a picture of the two kiddos after our shopping trip:You'll notice that Noah's still in his infant car seat...we have his other car seat (and have had it since he was born!) but this one fits babies up to 30 lbs and 32 inches, so I haven't been in a rush to move him out of it. Since he's only 3 weeks away from being one, I guess I'll get all the use out of this one that I can.
Here is a little video of Noah walking. I didn't realize that I filmed it sideways...oops. You'll have to tilt your head to get a good look at it. Does anyone know how to flip it? He probably would have continued to walk if our little step up wasn't in the way. It's amazing how comfortable he's become even in the last couple days.

Thanks for posting that picture of the two of them. And no, Eva didn't stay asleep much of the way home. Oh well. It was good while it lasted.
Way to go Noah!

He is really walking so much further than a week ago with much more confidence! What a cutie pie! Such a cute picture of the two tuckered out tots!!
