Walking

It is only fitting that the day after I finished my "running" post, Boo would...LEARN HOW TO WALK!!!!!!! I can't even believe I am typing this. I have dreamed of this day for so long, both literally and figuratively speaking (for those who know my kinds of dreams!). I have so much to do right now, since I have spent the bulk of my day either helping him to start walking (he needs help starting out and then he takes it from there) or announcing the good news, so I do not have time to tell the whole story. We will just say this - THANK YOU to our Shriner's hospital physical therapist, for now our little speed-crawler who, prior to this day had never in his life taken an independent step, has taken a record of 28 consecutive independent steps without stopping. Even our PT didn't expect this! (Today was the first day we saw him). That's all for now. Hopefully I can capture this on video soon.

Oh MY! YOU are both amazing!! I can't believe you ran a marathon. SERIOUSLY! You are one of the reasons why I took up running, although I didn't think a marathon would ever be possible. You are an inspiration to me! And I am SO excited that sweet Matthew is walking!! That is thrilling news! I loved your comment on my blog because I feel the same way, I would love to hear your voice because it has definitely been too long. I wonder if I even have your current phone number? Mine has definitely changed. I am so happy about the exciting things in your life!
