We're walking!!!

I mean Squiggles. Obviously I've been walking for a long time but it's Squiggles. She's walking. It's been on the horizon for a while and she may have taken some unaided steps the last couple of days but they were over so quick, we were never sure.
Last night DD came home and enticed her with the credit cards in her wallet and she walked a couple of steps. But since I missed it, that doesn't count. It's only when the historian decides that the event happened :)).
But today when DD came back from the office and tried the same trick, it worked and this time I was at hand to see it (actually if I'm perfectly honest then I missed it the first time today again but then DD tried again; what is it with Squiggles, she will say Papa but will not say Mama, will walk for DD but not for me).
As you can imagine we've been busy with the camcorder since the last one hour. My baby is now a toddler! Aww......
She's growing up. It's too fast.
I'm so excited.

Hurray! Way to go, Squiggly Wiggly!

It's sooo exciting, isn't it? I remember when Moppet started walking the husband and I would sit about 4 feet apart with a favourite toy of hers and have her totter to and fro between us all the time...

Timepass, Ddmom, Poppins, ~nm - Thanks.

Orchid - I know, the memories are so sweet and truly individual.

Maggie - Tell me about it! We've been holding out things for her so she can keep walking :). She's got the hang of it now and there's no stopping her!
