Holland: Walking?!


I think I can officially say that Holland is walking now, at 25 1/2 months old (that would be 22 months adjusted for those keeping track). She will still crawl if in a hurry, and she still falls A LOT, but she is able to walk all the way across the family room, and usually chooses to walk from one toy to the next. The next step is turning. She is working on it, and does suprisingly well sometimes. She is very proud of herself, and we are proud of her.

I don't know how to explain it so others will understand, but sometime they surprise me with their normal two-year-oldness (like trying to walk in Mommy's shoes). Maybe it's just because I have long since given up on reading developmental charts and comparing them to other kids their age. Well, at least I am trying to. But, wow, doesn't she look so big (normal 2-year-old that she is)?

I read your blog all the time. I have a 2 year old grand daughter. I have to say that I got the idea to get her the little people house from your little girls. I would say that your little girls may have some physical difficulties, but they seem right on target with language and imagination, etc. Don't worry! You have awesome children and you are an awesome momma.

I came across your blog about 4 months ago and have been reading it ever since. I'm always so excited to see new updates and pictures - your daughters are very cute. Congratulations to Holland on her new milestone. I'm a Mommy of two from Canada.

Yipeee!!! I'm so excited about Holland walking! That pic of her wearing your shoes is SOOO ADORABLE! I was just reading your last post also, and those pic's of Eden playing peek-a-boo are soooo cute! Your girls are so gorgeous! I'm glad they're finally feeling better.

Take Care,
Sherry
