I'm so proud of myself!

I am 8 1/2 months old and I took my first 2 steps today! Mommy
and Daddy were both there when I did it. A few days ago, I started standing on my own for a few seconds. Today I stood for about 25 seconds and then took my steps. Here's a picture of me standing alone. In the past week or so, I have also learned to wave, 'give 5', sign and say 'all done', and clap my hands when I'm excited or someone is cheering for me.

I like to get in cupboards. I found one that wasn't locked! I also like to get in the fridge when Mommy or Daddy opens it up.
Here I am stretching. I like to grab my finger with my hand and put them over my head. I like someone to say "stretch!"
I like to stand at the door and look outside. I watched Daddy mow the lawn the other day. Sometimes I like to lick the window (see picture!)
I can now climb the stairs. Everytime Mommy and Daddy turned around, I was at the stairs. So they had to put gates up on the top and bottom of the stairs!

WOW! I randomly came across your blog - I haven't seen you in years! Sounds like you're doing great - your little boy is SO cute. It was so neat to see pictures of you, Laura, and your parents! I'm in Arkansas - finished Harding, moved to Rogers, met a great guy, got married, and have been teaching first grade for 4 years now! Good to see that you guys are doing well.
