The Little Lady walks!

As strong as the Little Lady is and as early as she did everything else, we all swore she'd be walking by 9-months. Well, she had other plans and we all know that things happen on this stubborn little gals terms, and only her terms.

We all tried to help her walk, holding her hands, trying to help her. She hated this. We'd grab her hands and her legs would instantly turn to noodles and she'd fall down. This was the case up until Tuesday of this week. Wednesday, she decided she'd walk. Wednesday night she was taking four and five steps. Thursday night she was walking across the room.

Last night we had Grandpa and Grandma over for dinner, after dinner with a captive audience, she was walking all over, changing directions, standing up in the middle of the floor after she'd fallen down, climbing onto the couch just so she could bail off and do it all over again.

Here are a few shots of her walking this morning.

Hmmm a strong independent girl that will do it when she is ready...hard to imagine;) They pretty much do stuff when they are ready...

So Lance said that she might not have done it when you thought because it took her some time to get her balance with those big old bows her mom puts in her hair:)

Watch out you will blink and she will be running...blink again and you will be a grandma:)

Yay for Tressie! Both of my girls were pretty much the day they decided they would walk and by the next day they were full walkers. Love it!

From the looks of it, Grandma thinks that she is going to go from crawling to running!
