Testing out our Walking Skills!!!

On Monday night, Paisley took her first steps!  The first couple of tries she would let go of whatever she was holding onto and pretty much just face-plant into the floor.  I guess she decided this method was not so successful and wouldn't be great for getting around.

So, she then steadied herself a little better and took 2 steps before crashing to the ground.  And then laughing at herself!  It was the cutest thing she's done so far and Aaron and I were lucky enough to both witness it.  We stared amazed at her for hours before realizing that it was really late (after 11 pm) and we needed to get her to bed...  :)

I realize everyone says that life is over now, but I love every single time she becomes more mobile.  It makes her happier and she actually is playing so much better on her own now.  The whole house is a playground which is hilarious because she doesn't play with any of her toys right now.  She mainly just wants us to walk with her while holding her hands.  And she'll go in circles around the living room and kitchen for hours!  Too cute!


  1. Yay, Paisley! Such a big girl!! I think I'd enjoy Jackson's mobility much more if I wasn't having to chase him while carrying another chunky baby! We do love watching him crawl, pull himself up, cruise - we are amazed at how quickly he has learned these things. I KNOW we will be just as enchanted with him when he walks as you were with Paisley:). We'll just also be tired, lol!

  2. Your ten-month old is walking?? Amazing! I cannot wait until Wesley takes his first steps. I keep telling him he can walk ANY day of the week between now and September, but starting in the fall it's Thursday-Sunday ONLY. I want to be there! Have fun with this!

  3. I am so excited! Landry started walking at 10 months too. It is a lot more work, but there are also good things -- like letting her walk into the house rather than carrying her and two bags of groceries.
