Abby has started taking her first steps… in fact it was a week ago that she took her first steps… first two, then four. She looked so proud of her naked little walking self =) (She and I were getting ready to take a shower… hence the nakedness). While she’s getting better at walking and is taking a few steps here and there, her favorite thing to do when we try to “practice” is to stand there and then let herself fall forward – much like those trust tests they have people do. Thank goodness one of us is always there to catch her. She thinks its a game and giggles like crazy… then she does it again as soon as we stand her back up.
The one thing that she has gotten great at this week is climbing the stairs. Holy smokes she’s fast!!! She climbed the stairs the first time a month or two ago… maybe it was closer to two… but she never really got higher up than the first or second stair. Not these past few days though! She’s quiet and sneaky about it and before we knew it she was “missing” yesterday. Ray found her at the top of the stairs, playing with the gate… that was only two minutes after he thought that she had come to visit Noah and me in the bathroom, while Noah went potty. I hadn’t thought that we would need to put the gate back up at the bottom of the stairs… I had thought wrong.
Abby is so quick. How could I forget that little kids can be so quick while crawling… it’s not that long ago that Noah was crawling… well… I guess he did start walking almost 18 months ago… my how time flies. Abby is going to be 1 in less than two months!!!!! Be still my heart. I will almost have two toddlers in the house. Oh boy!! And they are both so very strong minded – just like their daddy. In fact they are like their daddy in so many ways… it’s both a blessing and a curse at times 😉 (I love you Ray!!) But I wouldn’t trade them in the world. They are both amazing and I can’t believe that the’re both mine!
