You Put One Foot In Front Of The Other

Guess who took steps without assistance today?

Claire took her first two when I was at our friends’ home. Then after her afternoon nap, Claire got to work again with Uncle T nearby for support. After many tries, she took three steps. They weren’t graceful, and they weren’t actually one in front of the other. But that’s why we call them toddlers!

She was thrilled. We cheered and clapped, she shrieked, laughed, and clapped. I didn’t get it on video this time. I’m sure we’ll soon have lots of movies of her tearing up the carpet on two feet.

    Oh, congratulations! Steps. Wow.

    Today we took Aidan to Target for school supplies. He got his first backpack. Talk about steps!

    Oh, to walk
    You are so tall
    Oh, to walk
    And I am so small
    You are there and I am here
    Oh, to walk to you.

    When I click on your blog, it says 3 comments to this post, but I see only 2. The 3d one was mine, I think, but I don’t know why I can’t see it. Can you? It was a little poem for Claire.

    Hi Gerry — not sure why there is a delay. But it’s here now, and it’s a sweet poem. 🙂

    Good for her! Soon she will be in the Weeble stage. She’ll wobble but she won’t fall down. 😉
