Ok folks! We are OFFICIALLY WALKING. As in would rather walk than crawl style.
Around 10 months she started taking a step or two from person to person then around 10.5 months she started consistently being able to walk from person to person for a few steps. At 11 months to the day she walked the first time independently on her own with no one prompting her. Around then she really started to realize she could take steps on her own and we would see her take a couple of good steps here and there but then about two weeks ago it was like a switch flipped and she started zooming everywhere. Now she would rather walk than crawl which amazes me. She's so short with teensy feet so even though she's almost a year old and not really an early walker, she still looks a little funny to me! I just love that little munchkin. When she stops playing, walks over to me and lays her head against my leg to "love mama" I melt.
Yesterday was her one year photo shoot, her attitude was not the best because she is in the "investigate and play with everything she is not supposed to play with" phase but that's ok! I've seen one preview shot which was really cute so at least I know I'll have one! I can not believe that one year ago today was my due date and that in 4 little days she will be ONE! Her party is in a week and I can't wait!!! Pictures to follow!!! (I need it to rain a lot leading up to the party so that my allergies will keep in check. Fingers crossed!)
And lastly, TODAY I am picking up a nice gallon of whole milk because this week we start the transition from breast milk to whole milk. The fact that I have lasted a year amazes me for sure! WOW. Prayers for an easy transition.
Happy birthday week to my munchkin (and me too I suppose :) ) and a lovely week to you all!
