Adelaide’s First Stairs 

Yesterday, Adelaide decided she would walk all the way to the house. She took 89 reciprocal steps, including a turn, and went up our three stairs. I was there supporting her torso, but the leg strength and balance were all hers. She even problem-solved when her foot got stuck…moving it slightly back and then moving it forward. At the stairs, I just waited to see what she would do. When she lifted her left foot onto the stair, shifted her weight, and pulled her right foot up, I cried. The happiest mom tears. She took the last two stairs, leading with her left, and then collapsed onto the porch. All smiles. 


Today, it’s raining. I planned on carrying Adelaide into the house. But she had other plans. “I…..WALK…..RAIN!” So I gave my phone to my favorite boy, and we snapped some photos of Miss Adelaide walking. 


What a beautiful October surprise!
