Walk This Way November 8, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christine @ 10:20 pm

Elynor Grace Mottram took her first unassisted steps on November 1st!!!!!!!!! She walked on her own several times that day, with a lot of coaxing.

She has apparently decided that walking wasn’t all that special because she hasn’t done it since then. Even if there is just one step in between Jamie and I, she will sit down as soon as you let go of her hand and crawl. She’s a pretty cautious gal, which I am fine with since I scare easy! 

We did catch her on video, so if I can figure out how to get it online I will post it. I know you are super excited about the prospect of a video of Elly doing something this rare and unique,  just try your best to stay calm so that you’re still able to get some sleep at night.

    Those shoes are DARLING! We really should be shopping buddies. To answer your question on my blog… those cards were from a kit from Close to my Heart. It’s a stamping/scrapbooking company I am a consultant for. I did not make any of them up. I simply followed the instructions. But, it looks impressive when they are displayed next to each other and I pretended for a brief moment that they came from my brain. I can’t get over how casual the beach is in your posts… Does your husband need a financial analyst to work for him???
