First Steps!!!

Anna took, what I am calling, her first official steps today!!

Anna's Grandpa and Grandma have been doing a lot of encouraging during their visit, and today they were rewarded with this exciting milestone!

Check out her video...she stands for a few seconds and then takes 2-3 steps! 


Her balance has really improved over the last couple of days.  Maybe it is the ear tubes and removal of the fluid?  Or maybe it is a pair of shoes that actually fit! (Poor thing...I have been cramming her little piggies into size 5 shoes, but when I had them measured the other day, she needs a 6.5-7!!!)

Either way, Hooray for Anna!!!

  6. First of all.....size 6.5 or 7!!!! Ella is still comfortably wearing a size 4!! Wow, Anna is huge!! Now for the cheers!! Way to go Anna! She has those steps down. Trust me, in a matter of days she will all of a sudden just decide to walk ALOT!! Ella has been dabbling in steps for the last couple of months but a couple of weeks ago, she literally just started walking everywhere one day. I love it Anna!! Keep up the good work.

  8. She's big stuff! She looks like she's going to just take off running. She doesn't even have the Frankenstein walk most kids do at first. Grandma and Grandpa are great motivators!!!

  13. I enjoyed that so much, and enjoyed seeing the joy on Grandma and Grandpa's face just as much. They are enjoying Anna so much and that warms my heart. Anna is doing so great and like Denise says one of these days she'll just take off like she's been doing it all her life. I can't wait till Saira starts walking a new world opens up for them.
