She walks!


Miss Eliza let go of me and took a couple steps earlier this evening, and then a couple more soon after that. Then the older kids spent the rest of the evening working her to death. They kept standing her up and encouraging her to walk. She ended up taking lots of steps, total. The most she ever did at once was three or four. So she’s off to the races, I guess! I had a feeling this was coming. Numerous times lately she has been standing, holding on to something with one hand, and I could see the wheels in her head turning. I could tell she was thinking about letting go and taking off.
Eliza just turned 10 months yesterday, so she beat Madalyn for first steps by a full month and JZ by three months. I have always said that E. would walk earlier than the other two. She’s one determined little individual. Mad also started out more slowly. I had to stand her up and then coax her to take some steps. It took her like a week before she actually let go and walked on her own. Eliza started doing that right away. I have a feeling she’s going to be tearing around here like a maniac by next week! The girl is a force of nature.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Whoa. Move over, Boolie. I have a feeling she may turn out to be downright tame compared to Miss Eliza. However, if you’re anything like me I’ll bet you’re feeling a bit weepy that your lastborn is no longer a babe in arms.
