First Steps!!!

Well, Landry has been trying to walk for a good few weeks now. She's been standing alone and then kindof shuffling her feet and falling. Last night, though, she did it for real! She was holding onto my leg, she let go and took two solid steps, stopped, took one more step and then held onto the chair in front of her. Tonight we were all playing in the girls' playroom and she took 4 steps to Raymond! After that, she was trying to walk everywhere for the rest of the evening. She's pretty darn proud of herself, too. As soon as she lets go of what she's holding onto, she'll look up at us and smile really big, then take her steps while she's laughing. We've GOT to get it on video. Of course, we had no blank DVD's in the house last night or today. I'm getting some tomorrow. Until then, still pics will have to suffice. And please disregard the pantless child. Her pants are usually too long for her and she trips on them, so she's in just a diaper most of the time!

I just realized that I totally forgot to do a 9 month post for the baby girl! She turned 9 months old in December and she'll be 10 months old this week. Guess I'll have to do a 10 month post instead! I can't believe she'll be 1 year old in 2 months. AHHH!!!

Wow! Way to go Landry! She is so cute. How old was Bethany when she started walking? Claire is pulling up on things and when she crawls she acts like she wants to just stand straight up so, I think she will walk sooner then Lance did.

Bethany was a few days from being 11 months old when she took her first steps. Maybe the younger ones do it sooner because they see the older ones running around!

Wow that is awesome that she is already walking. It's not surprising though since she has done everything early :) We had a hard time to get Kylee walking on video too.

Walking before 10 months. Wow. Lucky you. ;)

Congrats to your little walking cutie!!! She's SO adorable! Pete and David were my early walkers, both at nine months, so I'm happy Leah is only starting to take steps on her own now.

I love that purple shirt on Landry . . . Leah has one just like it :-)

Holy cow - walking at 10 months! Eek! Hopefully her big sister keeps her occupied! ;-)

Char said...

Yay Landry - how cute that she laughs about her success! And I love those chubby baby roll thighs :) Nothing sweeter!

Amanda said...

It is so hard to believe that you have a baby that is too short for her pants!

Hooray, Landry!! We're so excited for you, cutie!
