Last month.... as Madi was beginning to pull herself up onto things and walk along the furniture... I said to Brendan... I think she'll be walking at 10 months....
It seems as though Madi had heard her mommy & wanted to go ahead and prove her right (for once)! :0)
On November 8th, 2009 ( the day Madi turned 10 mths old!) Our little Madi-Cakes took her first steps!!! Yay Madi!!
Brendan, Madi & I were all playing on the floor in the living room & Madi decided it was a great time to start walking from her activity desk over to Daddy ( and to Mommy) Brendan and I, of course, broke out into cheers for our little lady! We're SO proud of her! She started out just taking about 5 steps at a time ( before either getting to one of us or before just sitting down) But it didn't take her long to get her balance just right to be able to make it all the way across the room! Now she walks EVERYWHERE!! It's so cute to watch her go! She still is pretty wobbly and tends to walk like frankenstein at times but she is determined to GO! GO! GO!! I fear running will be accomplished before we know it!
We were able to get some of her first steps on video!
