one step at a time... or two

Ugh, when will she walk?! I'm always asking myself this, and sometimes it slips out and I ask others. I know, I know... once she starts I'll wish I'd had more crawling time, but still. When?!

Just before her birthday she took 1 step. Just one, and actually more of a "forward movement" then an actual step. It totally counted as a step at the time. After her birthday party had wound down and the families were just hanging out together she walked to her grandma (6 whole steps), and her other grandma got a photo! Her parents were so exhausted from the party weekend prep, that they were asleep on the couch - out cold, and missed it ( I'm speaking in the third person because of the guilt of sleeping through it all!). Well, thats pretty much the last of the walking we've seen. She takes the occasional step, and will step from one chair to the other.

She loves pushing her shopping cart, or push car, or the dolly stroller. She could go all day doing that, but walk alone - HA! No way. until........

Well ya give that girl a little Beatles back ground music and a LOT of strangers watching and cheering her on, and she'll walk all night! We went to the Dallas Arboretum for their summer concert series on Thurday, and they had a Beatles cover band. We brought a picnic, and hung out all night. It was such a great time, just the 3 of us, and all the friends Emme had made by the end of the night! She was shakin her booty in a serious way, and loving the music! She kept standing up and walking around her stroller and pretty soon, was walking all over the place. She would fall and get right back up! I think with the distraction of the music, the people watching her, and all the kids running around it was just what she needed!

  1. So cute! They just have to decide when it is time for them to walk and then they go. All of the sudden those few steps turn into never stopping. She is getting so big. Hope to see you guys in June.
