One Small Step for the Veej

We’ve been saying “she’s going to be walking any day now” for about three months.   

Then, two days ago, she stood up on her own for the first time. No clinging to the coffee table, no leaning on the armchair. And now she has taken her very first step! It was one step and it was tiny. But it was a step absolutely, all on her own, with no assistance from anything. I’ll be getting out the video camera now to have on standby because “she’s going to be walking any day now.”

For real.

    I agree with Chuck. A real milestone for the Veej. As she gains confidence, she will attempt more steps on her own now. YOU GO GIRL! All her life she can claim that near the 2009 inaugeration she took her first step in life.
