Peyton took her first steps last night, it was totally unexpected! She really hasn't seemed interested in trying to walk. She'll cruise on the furniture all day long, but would much rather crawl to get around. This weekend I noticed she was standing own her own a lot more now that she's realizing crawling outside hurts in shorts and sundresses.
Last night she was standing against the couch and I was just a little more than an arms reach away holding her Minnie and Mickey. She wanted them so bad...she reached her hand out and I kept mine just short of hers....then she took 2 steps and got to her toys! I couldn't believe it...it took me a few minutes to process what happened. Of course Edwin was working and I couldn't get her to do it again so I could video it. Later she was playing in my bedroom and took another step on her own...no camera yet again.
Who knows if she'll do it again any time soon or not, but it was such an amazing thing to witness. I teared up after it happened, my baby is growing in to a toddler right before my eyes!
