Last Memorial Day, Addison started cruising while holding onto furniture. And as far as progress towards walking? It's been at a dead stop.ever.since.
Even all summer when I was hugely pregnant and plead with her to "rise up and walk" because I felt the physical strength necessary to carry her was gone...NOTHING.
I've begged her, bribed her with chocolate, made Carter's chunky legs appear to be walking to make her jealous...NOTHING.
But then out of nowhere, a couple of weeks ago (OK, not nowhere, chocolate WAS involved) she took her first independent step. YAY!
Then it was two at a time, then three, then four (well, you get the idea)
The other day in therapy, she maxed out at THIRTEEN! I'm so proud I could weep (mostly that's my back celebrating that hopefully soon I will only have to carry ONE baby everywhere)
but also proud at how hard she has worked to get to this point. YAY ADDISON!!!!!
and just in case you don't believe me:
keep in mind she was walking in socks on hardwood floor (she keeps taking her shoes off)
we're definitely not to the point yet where she ONLY walks...but for the first time, she wants to try.
She's had to work so hard to get to this point, and I couldn't be more proud.
This is huge.
(meanwhile, what has Carter been up to? the start of a long career of shameless womanizing)
watch out for this one, ladies.
