1208 Walking

Journaling reads:
This was the day you finally “decided” to walk.  Your first steps were almost three weeks prior on November 21.  I’d picked you up from daycare, and while getting my shoes on outside the door, you took two steps all on your own.  I am not sure I would have believed it if another mom hadn’t been there to witness it too.  I was so excited, but you weren’t convinced.  Sure, we tricked you into repeating it a few times in the following weeks.  But we had to distract you to get you to walk again.  But on this day, December 11, with a big huge smile on your face, you decided to let go and walk to Daddy. You were so thrilled that you could make your way to him without holding on – you were so proud of yourself. But not as proud as we were.  You haven’t stopped moving since.
