One Step

leila took her first step today. i can hardly believe it!! she was standing at the patio door and i was sitting next to her. she was watching the dog play outside. she had one hand on the window and her body was facing me. then she let go of the window and grinned at me and took just one step! my little girl is growing up! i was sooo excited and surprised...and a little sad of course (even though i know it could still be a while before she actually walks)! i just had to share it with you all!

How exciting! :) Baby milestones are so rewarding (and like you said, bittersweet as well).

Oh my, I know I would be excited for that too! So fun! But kind of bittersweet too...ah, the feelings that go with being a mommy!

definitely a bittersweet milestone...i'm just waiting for kate to gather the courage for that first step...she is standing by herself for minutes at a time...just won't make forward motion...and for now, i'm okay with that...makes her seem more like my baby still!
