Addison's First Steps

Addison took her first real steps on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the dentist office. Tim and I were at the dentist for a cleaning, and when I came back to the waiting area after having my teeth cleaned, Tim told me Addison took four steps. I didn't believe him at first, and then he told me to stand there to see if Addison would walk to me. Sure enough she took three little steps to me.

Addison is one funny gal. For the longest time Addison wouldn't ever stand up and walk with me. Honestly she wanted nothing to do with walking, anytime I would try to have her stand up and hold my hands she would just buckle down and then crawl away. Well since the beginning of November she has started to show more interest in walking, actually she prefers it. I guess I should say she now enjoys walking with a little assistance from me or Tim. Each day it seems she gets a little more confidence. On Friday, when Tim got home from work he was having her try and walk from couch to couch. After she did that a few times he had her stand a little further away to walk towards the couch to pick up her bear. Next thing we know, one step turns to two and two turns to four.

Here is a little video we took of Addison taking some little steps on Friday. We are so proud of her and enjoy seeing her work at this new milestone. She is still a little wobbly, but I'm sure she'll have it down in no time.

I just had to comment, 'cause I always snoop on your blog. I linked to your blog off of one of my friend's friends....if that makes sense. You have the cutest blog...and your little girl is adorable!! I hate it when people don't comment, when they read blogs....so I had to leave one for you. You are such a cute, creative person, and I just love reading your blog. (I hope you don't mind!!) I absolutely love your blog header and I wish I was somewhat talented to figure out how to do that. :o) Happy Holidays!! Carrie

Way to go Addison!! I watched the video expecting two or three steps so seeing her take about 10 was awesome! Now if only your parents can learn to get less wobbly with the camera... :)
