Big week for me!!
Remember how last Friday Momma saw me take two tentative steps toward her? Well, I did it a couple more times over this last week. One step here and two steps there. Then, on Thursday night, I took four steps! Momma kept encouraging me and I repeated it a few times. Taking six steps one time and even crouching to steady myself at one point. In the last three days I have become more and more confidant. Momma and Daddy even catch me walking without an apparent destination (USUALLY I'm walking toward Momma or Daddy or toward the couch or toward the coffee table). I haven't figured out how to just stand up in the middle of the room yet. I have to pull up somewhere to stand myself up and then take off from there. I don't like it when someone tries to stand me up (like if Daddy was holding me and he tries to put me down, I won't bear weight on my feet). It has to be MY idea! Momma and Daddy know that I LOVE to make sure all the doors are closed, but I recently figured out that the DRAWERS need to ALWAYS be closed too. In order to close the drawers, I have to stand up and reach. So, this has turned into the method to make me stand up! Someone will "accidentally" leave a drawer open (OOPS!), and I go over and close it. While I'm still standing up, I am encouraged to just go ahead and walk over to open arms. I get SO excited about this! It's really a fun new game. So, watch out, because it won't be long before I'm walking all over the place!
Today, I got to meet my new friend Addison Kate. Momma and Daddy are friends with her Momma and Daddy, Jen and Troy Lamastus. I was at their wedding last October and I was excited to finally meet little Addi Kate who was born two months ago. She was so cute. I just know we'll be friends for life! While we were there I showed off some of my stepping skills, but I REALLY liked showing Troy and Jen ALL of the babyproofing they will need to take care of here pretty soon! ;)
Tomorrow we're heading up to Nashville to have lunch and spend some time with Grandmomma and Granddaddy. I'm looking forward to visiting with them!
