First Steps!


Today Molly took five steps all on her own! It was pretty exciting. It was me and Todd, so at least I have a witness!

I was sitting on the couch and she was by me, so I held her hands to see if she'd stand without holding onto anything (she's done this before several times, for about a whole minute just a day or two ago). She stayed balanced and Todd was encouraging her to come to him and she did! She took five steps, then fell onto her horse. Justin was bummed that he missed it, but you just never know when it will happen!

I'm sure Justin was sooooo sad he didn't get to see her walk! That's so exciting though. I really can't believe how big she's getting. I still remember so clearly going to see her for the first time at the hospital. We love you Molly!
