I got the call

I got the call that I have been dreading today. Aubrey’s day care provider called me at work at 11:14 a.m. to tell me that Aubrey just took two steps. I was so conflicted. Part of me wanted to cry because I wanted to be there SOOO bad and I ALMOST worked from home today! (kicking myself) Of course the other part of me is overwhelmingly proud of her and this new accomplishment.

Last night she stood up twice without holding on to anything. One minute she was sitting and the next she was standing, it was remarkable. I didn’t think she would transition to walking so quickly!

Lisa said she was in the living room with the kids and looked over at Aubrey and she was standing all by herself and just took two steps before going back down to her butt. I hate that I missed that. She also said after she saw that she was getting her to take more steps by holding toys in front of her. I can’t wait to go home!!!

Last weekend I bought Aubrey her first pair of Chuck Taylor’s and they are so cute!


I can’t wait to see what she is going to look like WALKING in them!

Oh my gosh this is just so exciting. I knew she would be walking before her birthday but I guess I didn’t actually believe it or I just didn’t comprehend how little time was between now and her birthday.

{sigh} My baby is growing up.

    This is soooo cool, Sarah. I can’t wait to hear all the stories about her walking (and soon running) around!

    And I gotta say, you’ve got good taste in Chuck Taylors. 😉
