FINALLY!!!

It FINALLY happened! EMILY WALKED!!!!

I know I mentioned she walked before when I posted about it previously but that was only one or two steps. She has done NOTHING since that time...until today!

Earlier at my mom's, she was able to accomplish this:



Of course I took a bazillion videos of it but the one I am sharing here is her walking the farthest!

The video isn't the best because it was taken from my camera phone but you better believe you have ONE PROUD MOMMA right here!!!!

I only wish Erik was here! :( I was able to tell him and send him an email of the above video that I hope he'll be able to retrieve.

He is currently on his way to Los Angeles on a strike team again. No telling when they will be back. If you are interested in reading more about it, feel free to click here.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for him and all the other thousands of firefighters and other civil servants out there. It's always a scary time for me when he has to go on a strike team, but this is the furthest he has had to go. I trust him and I trust his crew, but I can't help but worry!

WOOHOO Emily... congrats on the walking skills :)

Soon she is going to be showing you her running skills...lol.

Also I heard about the fires down south and I will keep a small prayer and thought for your husband and all those down there.
