We have a walker!

Well sort of. After much super-secret stressing about the Kid not walking yet, she took eight or nine steps on her own when the Boss and her parents came over for dinner. Of course, it didn't even register for me at first because I thought the my husband was holding her hand and then I realized that he had both of his hands on the ground and then I see her let go of the couch and start walking and then... wait a second... is she WALKING? I was totally at a loss for words. I think that being around the Boss makes her want to walk. it gives her something to aspire to. They sort of have a Yoda-Luke Skywalker thing going with each other.


The Boss: The force is strong with you...
The Kid: But I don't think I can actually use my legs to walk. I prefer to have Jello Knees..
The Boss: Use the force, young grasshopper...
The Kid: Look, ma! I'm walking with no hands!

We were on a playdate about 3 months ago with Miss A when she started walking for the first time and now here she is when the Kid walks for the first time. It was awesome. It was spectacular. It was electrifying. It was the beginning of a whole new level of childproofing to do...

Um, Hank is probably crying out of joy that you used anything Star Wars related in reference to the girls! The Boss has a few more tricks to teach...

Oh, how amazing! If The Boss is teaching other babies things, then I might not let her come over again for a looong time. Just kidding! Tobi, you have such a way with words. Good luck with the childproofing!
