|Minutes after our first glimpse of Lena's first steps, our 19 month old shows off her hands-free walking skills to Daddy!|
Kathy and I have waited 19 months for this day, and it's finally here! Our family and friends have been walking Lena around by our fingertips for months. All the while, we've been fending off requests from Lena's pediatrician to schedule appointments with a neurodevelopmental specialist. Nah!
What took Lena so long? Was she too tall? No, but her 34" height DOES place her in the 95th percentile of 19 month old babies.
Did she lack physical stamina? No way. She always has energy to spare!
The most likely reason that we're just now witnessing Lena's first steps is... Lena finally decided to show the world what she can do. Watch out, world. It's on!!
Sometime in the next few weeks, I'll dedicate an entire Garth's Blog post to previously unseen pictures of Lena getting ready for what happened this evening. In the meantime, enjoy a video of this God-given historic occasion:
