Moving forward

On Tuesday when I went to pick Lila up from school I was expecting business as usual. Lila either comes out being pushed in a stroller or pulled in a wagon, depending on how many kids are there that day. Here's a picture of Luke and Lila, wagon buddies.


Much to my surprise when the door I opened, I didn't realize that Lila was coming out right then because she was walking, holding on to one of her teacher's hands. I was so excited! A walker! Today she's a walker! I was so incredibly proud. (And yes- of course- I felt those familiar tears welling up in my eyes.) I'd love to post a picture of the moment but unfortunately my camera was in my purse and I was already on my way to the door to get her. Later that day, at physical therapy, she decided to walk down the hallway with Miss Carla. I say decided because most of the time when you try to get her to walk holding on to one of your hands she just drops to her knees. That's happening less and less and we are THRILLED!

Here she is walking with Miss Carla looking quite pleased with herself!

Apparently it was all a bit much for her.

Proud to be her mama~
