Ok, not really, but it’s too cute.
Devyn took her first two independent steps on August 5th (you as readers probably don’t really care, but I have to get this down for posterities sake). I was so excited that I called DH in the middle of this class to tell him. They were only two steps and then she fell directly on her little bum, but I’m a mom, I get to be excited about things like this. The next day while I was at work DH tried to get her to recreate it to no avail. Then that night, while he was again at class, she walked three steps and then fell. The next day my parents arrived in town and she just kept walking a few steps at a time, getting up to five or six in a row, but DH was still in class taking his final. I sent him a really crappy video so he could see, which of course he thought was adorable. She finally walked for Daddy later that night after he got home from his class.
Well, then we went on vacation and she was strapped in car seats and strollers all the time, completely messing with her new found ability to walk, but whenever we got to a place where she could be let out and walk she did. She’s still getting the hang of it so she holds her arms out in front of her, just like a zombie in those really bad horror movies, to keep her balance. It’s too cute. I tried to get a video of it, but I don’t think you get the full effect of night of the living dead, but I'm afraid she's about to become a holy terror!
I have so much to say since I've been gone so long with the vacay and all, but it will have to wait for another time. Be watching for all my wonderful commentary on everything Southern California though:)
