good gravy the girl can walk!!!


we have a walker over here and we can hardly believe it!!!  who knew it was going to take a visit to the library to make it happen.  for some reason this whole thing called walking just clicked, and miss stella decided that the library was for walkers only.  sans shoes.  and lots of shrieks from this proud mama.

here's how it all went down: this little cookie let it be known to the library world by her numerous hoots and hollers {sorry everyone trying to concentrate/read/sleep/"study"} that she was excited about taking some serious steps.  after warming up her lungs, a walking warm up if you will, she took 13 whole steps in a row {the current number to beat}.  she completed her trek with her infamous expression, lucky you for getting to see it in action!  and lucky me for having my phone nearby.  you should have heard her dada's reaction to the video.  i know he was miles north tucked away in his office, but i swear i could see him smiling.  

so what all does this mean?  well, i am not quite sure.  everyone keeps telling us to "watch out" *insert awkward laugh* once she will be able to walk.  ...like all of a sudden she will be committing disastrous transgressions and ruining the home we have already baby-proofed???  i just knocked on our wood floor.  whew.  but in all seriousness, now that this girl of ours is on the go, i guess that means new and exciting things are on the horizon!  for now, we will keep praising this little walker of ours in hopes that she will keep on going and perhaps turn it into a run!

  5. Yay Stella!!! There is nothing more exciting than watching your baby walk! Love it! I also heard from so many people that it's harder once they walk but I personally love it! She can definitely get into things quicker than before, but it's just easier all the way around!

  7. yay stella! wyatt looks the exact same way when he walks {stumbles} around. It's so funny that they aren't quite sure what to do with their arms yet - hehe. What cute little movers we have! xo.

  8. Oh my heavens! She's moving alright! My niece is 15 months old and she is a little speed demon. It freaks me right out! When I'm watching her now, I really have to watch her because she is all over the place!
    Have fun ;)

  10. I'm impressed - she did quite the trek for her first time! And impressed with mama for getting it all on video! What a great memory and milestone.

    I absolutely loved the walking milestone. While they still want to be carried and cuddled as before, it so fun when they can walk beside you. You're forced to take life slower, which enables you to stop and get a better view :)

    Congrats on a baby walker!
