Steps in the Right Direction

It has been quite an eventful weekend around here! Megan has decided that she wants to test the waters of a new independence (oh dear!). No, she's not walking (yet) but she actually did take her first unassisted steps. No more than two steps- which ended in her falling into our arms - but she loves it! I think she realizes that she's onto something here and wanted to practice all evening. Note the look of glee on her face!
What she really likes to do is try to walk and only hold onto one hand. She's trying to figure out how to balance. There are times when I try to hold out both hands and she looks at me with the strangest look that sort of says, "Mommy, don't you know I only need one of those now?!"
Oh my goodness - my baby is growing up (fast!) and I don't know if I'm ready for it. The next three weekends are full of family birthday celebrations. Next weekend it'll be for my nephew, Justin. The following weekend will be for my niece, Anna. Then rounded out with a hoopla for Megan's 1st B-day. I was at the hospital when all these little ones were born (one in particular is especially vivid) :^) Hard to believe they are going to be 7, 4, and 1. Watching children grow up really causes you to realize how fast time does fly by.

you hear it all the time, but your life will really never be the same once she can really walk!
