Tears of Joy!

I've cried many tears this past year, many many tears! Sad tears, tears of fear, happy tears, tears of relief, you name it, I've felt it and probably cried about it.

Tonight, I can't stop crying the absolute best tears I've ever felt. This morning I watched my sweet Leah stand up her in ball pit--holding nothing, then I watched her do it in the middle of the floor, and then again in the ball pit. Then this evening I watched her stand up in the middle of the floor and walk across the room, she fell, put her hands down and got herself right back up!! My heart is filled with pride and sheer joy!!!!

I think she's there! On Friday, our PT said she thinks in a month she'll be fully walking--while I can't believe I'm admitting this...I think it will be MUCH, MUCH sooner!!!!

I remember when Sammy first started standing back up all by himself. I was just amazed at how much strength coordination that must take. I am constantly reminded how blessed we have been this past year, never before did the little things matter so much to me. I am so glad to be able to share this with you guys.

I agree with you. Once Sammy started standing back up it was days before he was mostly walking, because he would still fall all the time but he just got right back up!!! PLEASE TAKE A VIDEO!!! I can't wait to see her. She is doing fabulous!!!

I will try to get a video tomorrow!! It's so hard with her, she really loves trying to grab the camera, so once I take it out--she looses all concentration on what she is doing and goes straight for the camera!

It's so funny that when she did all these amazing things today all I could think about was telling you guys--I mean who else understands like you all!?

That is so exciting! Once she's standing, she'll move to cruising and she'll be off and running in no time. :)
