My little Bug took her first steps today!
How did his happen???
She was just a baby not too long ago...
I remember her first roll over like it was yesterday...and her sitting up....crawling...she just started standing not that long ago...now she's walking??
Her first steps were literally only two steps...one foot in front of the other...but it was steps. She found the courage within herself to let go of the table, find her balance and step.
She did do it twice...ahhhh. It was an amazing moment for this momma for sure. I'm thankful she waited until I got home from work...I was sure I'd miss it...but she waited.
It's a magical moment for any parent I'm sure, when your child accomplishes something, overcomes a fear...but when you're a single parent (for the most part)...those moments are huge. It's reasuring me that I'm teaching her right, I'm giving her the direction and the confidence she needs to let go (not too much letting go of momma...please...) but, she was able to let go of that table and go for what she wanted...which was "Dora, Dora" in this case or Auntie Jess thinks it was her...But whatever it was she was going for she was determined. She put her brave face on and pushed through. She pushed through just like her momma does daily...I guess it's rubbing off!
Yay to first steps!!!
