one giant leap for mankind

It's been quite a landmark week here. On Monday Somebody passed his final citizenship interview. On Friday he passed his oral comprehensive exam and officially became a doctoral candidate. (Stressed much?) On Sunday we had my family over for a belated Chinese New Year celebration dinner and Gulliver took his first step. Well, not just his first step. He also took his second, third, fifteenth, thirty-seventh, and fifty-ninth. Once he got going he was all over the place.

This video was taken, seriously, about five minutes after he took his first step. Is that just the cutest thing you've seen this morning?

Jennifer, it's been a while since I got caught up on your blog. I'm almost hurting just thinking about the 3 falls you had. You little boy is absolutely adorable. You guys make such a cute family. Hope you guys have a fun Easter. You'll have to let me know how your meal exchange goes.
