Ladies & Gentlemen, We Have A Walker!

"That's right, I'm 1!"
"And I'm pretty excited to be 1!"
"And guess what? I figured out how to walk!"
"I've been walking while holding on to things for a while now, but I'm making big progress at walking on my own!"
"Today, I was pretty proud of myself! And I was pretty smiley because I was so happy about walking all over the Punctuation Station!"
"That's right, I'm walking! All by myself!"
"Look at me go!"
"Mommy thinks I look pretty cute in my little jeans."
"I'm seriously cute! My Mommy says I'm like a real person, but mini."

"Here's a video of me walking all by myself, taking around 20 Kyra-sized steps. Enjoy!"

Kyra has been taking steps for a while now, but suddenly today she showed some amazing progress on the walking front. I think we can officially say that she's walking now! Today, walking was definitely her preferred method of transportation, as opposed to crawling. She had so much fun walking all over the Punctuation Station at the mall, and then did a bunch more walking to show off for her Daddy! We were so busy being captivated by her walking that we had to push back her bath and put her to bed a little late tonight. She was just having too much fun walking and playing in her room, and we didn't want to say goodnight! She's so excited to be walking and she gets so happy when she reaches her destination. She's been communicating her excitement with some extra, previously unheard vocalization! She's definitely going to be keeping us on our toes now!


  1. I love this post. I can just see how happy Kyra is. You and Geoff must be having so much fun watching her!

  2. Oh my gosh...she is just SOOOO adorable. Love the walking. I love it when kids walk, they are so proud of themselves!
    And, the jeans are precious. She is like a mini grown up. :) Love the blog, Jackie!

  3. Yay! Go Kyra! Can't wait to see her in action on Sunday!
