These Jammies Are Made For Walkin'

EDWIN TOOK HIS FIRST STEPS TONIGHT!!!

After dinner and bathtime at Grandma & Pappy's house, we were all hanging out in the dining room. Katie was taking pictures of Anthony (top secret for now) and Edwin was busy exploring. I don't even remember exactly how it happened, but we thought we'd let Edwin attempt walking. Ed has been working with him diligently almost every day...he can stand up on his own,but so far wasn't able to take a step. Well that all changed tonight.

Grandma stood him up, made sure he was steady....He stood there for just a second....and then he did it!!! He took about 3 or 4 real steps...then kind of stopped as if he wasn't sure what he was doing....before plopping his butt down on the floor. We stood him back up...tried again (to make sure it wasn't a fluke)...and sure enough...more steps!!

I'm sure he could have kept going, but I scooped him up and smothered his adorable face with kisses!! I'm so grateful that I was able to see my baby's very first steps. And best of all, Auntie Katie captured them on film!!!!! See...for all of you people that have ever made fun of us in the past for taking too many pictures, I say "told ya so". Check it out!
