If you have been reading our blog you know that our darling little girl does not have an affinity for crawling. She rather loathes it...its usually one attempt followed by an extended try at standing up, holding onto something and falling on her small butt. Well, after picking her up from day care today and letting her sleep for 30 minutes due to the sheer exhaustion of playing with all of her new friends in the water on splash day, she did something rather remarkable. It was incredible really.
On a side note, I have picked Emmy up from day care twice now, and twice she is playing with the same little girl when I get there, and twice as I pick Emmy up off the floor that same little girl starts crying uncontrollable. Its sad, very sad, but cute as well I guess. I'm not sure if she's crying because she wants someone to pick her up, or, if its because her friend is leaving for the day. The fact that they are together makes me think the latter.
But back to the main point of the post...Emmy took her first step...seven months old, not really able to crawl, and now taking a step. I was not able to catch the blessed moment on film but I did get a couple of quick videos of her standing on her own right after it happened. And Ann, I can promise you, it did happen...What's next for the little one you ask? Tomorrow we begin potty training...kidding...
