She's Walking Folks!

It looks like baby (I know at some point I'm going to have to stop calling her a baby) Emily Grace has decided that she wants to be upright and has taken to walking! She is really moving quickly on her feet. I am so proud of her. She is getting less timid daily and is doing more walking by the day. She really amazes me at how quickly she catches on to things. She discovers she can do more things each day. I used to be very scared about her being on the couch because she was fearless about just crawling off the edge. Now she will back down feet first on her belly and does it very swiftly and safely. She is also still crawling off and on the fire place. That has always been a big no-no at our house even with the older kids just because one false move and we could have a trip to the ER. She is very cautious when she is on the bricks, but when she is told NO to get away she will usually comply. That's not to say that she will stay away once she gets down, but she does at least listen when she is told no, right?

Your baby is beautiful! My baby is 11 years old and I promise you, you will never stop calling your baby a baby. My son has to constantly remind me to call him "The Kid" so I call him baby behind his back.
