Oh my God, Zoey’s walking!!!!!!
Finally, after taking her first steps about a month and a half ago, and after miles and miles of walking holding onto my pinky finger, this weekend Zoey started walking all by herself! I am so ridiculously proud of her and so relieved she made it! I feel like having preemies makes you a little wary of developmental milestones. And, while Kayla has hit every one of them on time, I’m always a little more worried about Zoey. I shouldn’t be because she has hit every milestone also, just about a month-6 weeks behind Kayla. And walking was no different. She literally started walking 5 weeks after Kayla!
Now, the fun really begins. Zoey is definitely still looking like a drunken sailor with her steps, but she keeps taking more and more on her own. I think once she’s a little steadier on her feet, things will get interesting. I will have 2 walking babies!! Of course I am super naive and I’m expecting that they will always go in the same direction with each other and listen to me when I ask them to come to me. I’m sure I am in for a huge reality check! My guess is my girls will be constantly going in opposite directions. At least I’m going to get skinny running after them!
I know this blog is a little short, but I just wanted to share the fabulous news about Zoey with everyone. And Kayla’s still delicious too! Oh, but before I sign off this week, I highly recommend everyone check out a friend of a friend’s amazing blog: www.playingmom.com Dani, the blogger, just won a cool award and gave me a shout out which I so appreciate it! And her blog is awesome!! Anyway, happy thanksgiving everyone and I’ll write again after the holiday.
