She's walking!!!

Adeline took her first real steps yesterday.  I know she has a lot of practicing left to do, but we are just SO excited at this "step" in the right direction.  This mama is so proud...


A special thanks to Christie for capturing this video with her camera, and also for providing the backpack which was the item Adeline was interested in at the moment we wanted her to walk.

YAY!!! She's so good at it already!! I can't believe how fast everything happens. Once they get it in their head that they want to do something, it's literally in a blink of an eye and their doing it! I can't wait to have her in the nursery at PWOC again so I can see her trotting around!

YAY!! Watch out, it will go from walking to running - REAL FAST!

Is it cruel to call them and then keep backing up? We did it too - LOL!!!

Yay Adeline! Oh how excited you must be - what a fun time for you all!

Short Stop said...

OH, no she isn't!!!

I can't believe it! It's the purse...keep getting her purses and you'll be amazed at what she'll do! At least that's what I keep telling Jason! :)

YAY Adeline, you big girl! :)

Kristen said...

Yeah Adeline! She is really moving :o)

Yay, Adeline!! I can't wait to see you guys again! My heart sunk when I saw you'd changed your return date, but I'm so glad your separation from Patrick will be only two weeks rather than two months! That's much better!!
And, YOU WON! How long does it take to get packages? I'm wondering it your share of the 200 cookies should wait until July? Just let me know!

O.K., so living with a pre-schooler really messes with your grammar. My heart SANK or SUNK? Which is it? I honestly have no idea.=)

How cool! What a fun moment that must've been for you as her parents. I loved watching little girl take her first steps. It felt like I was winning the jackpot! So exciting and so fun!!

How exciting! Those are such joyous moments-----and was that one of those military reflector things for exercises?

I definetly don't rush my children to walk any faster like I did with my older ones. :)
