The Step

Today, my friends, is a glorious day.

I slept like a rock. Er, Isabella slept like a rock. Me-the-ever-light-sleeper-since-Isabella-was-born woke up. But just a few times.

But Isabella slept like a rock! I believe it was the Motrin that Krystyn recommended.

Krystyn...I cannot thank you enough!

How can I repay you for your wisdom? I'm serious by the way...

So, Isabella slept until 8ish.

But that's not what I am SO excited about, friends.

Oh, no. Not after what happened yesterday.

It was another long teething day.

But what happened made that disappear.






Without her Momma holding out her fingers for her to grasp onto.

She didn't need any help by a chair.

Or a couch.

Or a table.

She did it. On her own.

Congratulations, baby girl! Momma is proud.

So, so proud.

WAY TO GO Isabella! That's so awesome. First steps are so exciting. Next thing you know, she'll be running.

Yay! What a milestone.
Now....let the chase begin.

Krystyn said...

I'm glad the Motrin worked for you! Just pass on the wisdom!

And, I can't believe she took a step already. Savor her lack of mobility, because after walking comes RUNNING! WTG, Isabella.
