My Daughter is....

"almost, sort of" WALKING

Is there really anything more than that to say?!?!? It is as amazing and glorious to watch her take her first steps after surgery as it was to watch them the very first time she learned to walk.
God blessed us with the miracle of perception - we waited six long years for her to walk the first time; surely we can wait a few months to see if it returns once again.

She is determined, and has surprised all of us more than once, as she first worked to sit up on her own, and then to lay back down, and within a couple of days, to pull herself all over the room, and then soon, she was on her hands and knees - and then trying topull to stand at the table or the couch or near the computer.

She is working hard to shift her weight from leg to leg to start taking those first steps...

She has a lot of muscle tone to recover, but she is getting there....

She is...simply amazing.

I say that as if we didn't already know that. yeah right.

Congrats! Nicky, who's 5 has recently started walking independently and it is such a thrill. I just love to watch him it's such a thrill.
