I sat beside you and was gathering up some toys when all of a sudden I noticed you standing behind your Radio Flyer rocket. You pulled yourself up holding the front end of the rocket, your hands were on the handles and the back of the rocket was facing opposite you. Then, the very best part of all, you began walking behind the rocket! I couldn't believe my eyes! You walked all the way across the room! I stood up, so excited and cheered you on, "Way to go Will, that was awesome!!" We have it on video also. Such a special moment!
