Today it finally happened.
Charlotte took her first cautious steps completely on her own! It was only a few steps at a time, and she didn’t get very far, but it was repeated multiple times over the course of the day. Katy was so worried over the last month or so that she would miss this when it happened, because she’s at school for most of the time that Charlotte is awake during the weekdays, but we were both there watching this momentous event take place during lunch. Charlotte was so proud of herself that she squealed aloud, and we’re sure that over the next few days she’ll pick up the confidence to keep going after those first few steps. THAT’S when the real fun (or craziness) will begin!
