My family has also cruised quite a bit, and we've chartered a boat for trips in the Caribbean, New England, the Amalfi coast in Italy and the French Riviera.
We really love our annual vacations and more often than not they're on a boat.
Well, apparently my kids are going to like boats too.
See, that's Caroline pulling up for the first time on a boat.
We took a New Years cruise when Andrew was 10 months old and he decided that was the perfect time to start walking.
Who starts walking on a moving boat??
Now that we're home and back on solid ground she's not slowing down.
Poor baby has a cold and is teething and not sleeping well, but she's on the move anyway. She's crawling, slowly, but she's crawling.
And yesterday I found her pulled-up to standing on a toy, holding on with one hand.
I give all the credit to the cruise.
Being on the water seems to inspire these kids.
