we have a walker!!

I posted a while back about how we were a little concerned that our 18 month old wasn't walking on her own yet. She could push our little toy shopping cart, walk holding onto our finger but as soon as we let go she'd just sit down. We've been having her walk everywhere, hardly carrying her at all, so much that I've noticed that I've begun missing just holding her. It is so sad because she is getting so big and isn't much of a baby anymore and we don't know when/if we'll have another.
This morning Matt and I were sitting on the floor and we practiced having Aimee walk from one of us to the other, giving her toys to take to one or the other of us. She took a few labored, unbalanced steps and we tried again...and again..and again until she was walking a few feet and now...she can walk across the room. Sure she is quite unsteady but she is walking. I am so grateful. So many prayers have been said on her behalf and today they are prayers of thanks instead of prayers for help.

YAY!!! Sometimes we all take our own sweet time getting things done. I knew that she would do it when she was ready...I bet she is really excited! No more wainting for mommy to get her when she wants to move. Just wait, she'll be driving any day now...

That is fantastic news! Congratulations to the little darling. There's a whole new world out there for her to re-discover on a whole new level. Pun intended. Have a great weekend.

I thought I'd check the blog from school since my computer at home is having some issues about blogging! This is adorable...everyone walks at their own speed (I was going to say pace, but that sounds too corny). Each of you girls was different...no need to compare one to another - everyone gets around to it eventually though. So glad to see Aimee is going - now you're going to wish she'd stop once in awhile!
Love, Mom
