Baby Steps...

It happened today- Sofie took her first 5 real unassisted steps! Complete with a pivot turn and everything. It was unbelievable- and to make the moment more magical than I could have imagined it, Patton and I were both present and actually paying attention. As if it was the most natural thing in the world, Sofie just let go of the leg of my pants, turned and walked, no, W-A-L-K-E-D to the ottoman. Amazing.

I think this is one of those mom-moments that you just can't help but have... Overwhelming pride and excitement and sheer joy simultaneously smushed together with the "oh, shit-knock her down quick- we've created a monster" feeling that comes with realizing that she's broken the code and life as we know it is now over.But still- Amazing.

Also amazing; we're gonna have a whole new one of these crazy creatures in about 8 weeks. The time is simply flying by and (this week) I'm both giddy with anticipation and freaking out. But mostly I'm just glad he's got a name [READ: a name that I picked out months ago, and was secretly holding out hope for, all the while trying not to let on that I was COMPLETELY bias in the decision making process]. I love my husband.In other news, It is well past my normal 10 o'clock bedtime and this is, what I imagine to be, the first of many MANY nights this little guy will be keeping me up. Tivo is my hero.
