PA, I can just picture you and your husband and Sofie in the kitchen while she walks between you Like Katie E, I had a lower cupboard (not a drawer) in my kitchen which held my pots and pans and my daughter would take everything out and climb into the cupboard and then play with the pots and pan, plastic spoons, etc. (make sure to have a magnet on those cupboards so kids do not get trapped), and safety latches to lock those lower cupboards where you keep chemicals.

Definately get some photos of this huge life event!

It's funny--beginning walkers usually walk better when they are carrying something. They feel like they are holding onto something that will support them so they feel braver. Yay for Sofie! There's no stopping her now! My daughter is 27 and I can still see her first steps so clearly in my mind that it is just like it was today!

I'm with crewsk. How exciting for you guys, though!

Now please make the time slow down again, or it will seem like next month that I'll hear about her asking for the car keys.

PA Baker congratulations to you and Sofie. Now you won't have to worry about exercise, you will get plenty following your dear Sofie around the house, yard, etc.

Gosh it barely seems any time ago that she was born! How gorgeous that she is walking, it all goes by so fast doesn't it?

Whoo hoo for Sofie!!!!
We are all expecting photos pronto! Now you'll really be chasing her around. They're so cute when they start walking, they look kinda like penguins. Aidan did at least, he'd walk by raising one hip and then the other instead of bending his knees. I remember very clearly Aidan's first steps and his first shoes when he wanted to start walking out and about. Aidans cute little pair of red sneakers with blue stripes are anxiously awaiting Callum.

quiet time is over now congrats to the steps of your little sunshine

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
