She's Doing It!

Abby is finally walking. *sniff sniff*

Anna walked at 10 1/2 months, so we've been patiently waiting for Abby to feel like joining the world of upright walkers. A couple of weeks ago, she starting letting go and just standing there. Then last Thursday, she took a step. After a week of practice she is still a little weeble wobble, but she's coming along quickly! We're so proud. Anna is her biggest cheerleader, clapping and shouting, "Go Abby! Go Abby!" when she takes off walking. It melts me to see Anna so happy for her sister.

Here's a couple short clips for your enjoyment:

I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Milestones are special with all children, but for us, milestones like this with Abby are truly a blessing.

Now I can't wait to see her run.

This brought tears to my eyes, what a milestone! Abby walked earlier than Nick did despite everything she's been through; she really is amazing :)
