Lizzy took her first, real, honest-to-goodness, big girl steps tonight! Not the kind where the kid is planted in front of you and they sort of run/fall into your arms (although that is nice, too). They were the kind where there was one little step, a pause to regain balance, another step, then a pause to check balance. John and I just about died. Her mouth was so wide open with joy. I know I have never seen her more happy and obviously impressed with herself. It was as if she was almost in shock.

Considering the worries (legitimate or not) that we have with her, this is huge. Absolutely huge.

I wish I had a picture of her face from the actual event, but this will have to do. Just imagine the smile and eyes even bigger.
