Jillian's First Steps




I can say with confidence that Jillian took her first steps this weekend!! It happened completely out of the blue, I wasn't expecting it at all. I had a pre-concieved notion of how all babies usually take their first steps. You see it all the time. The Daddy is holding the baby standing upright with the Mommy sitting a few feet away coaxing the baby to walk towards her. Nope!!! Not with Jillian.

Jillian was helping me unload the dishwasher which is probably one of her favorite new past times. She loves to take the silverware out of the holder and throw them all over the floor. While she was picking out a few spoons for herself to play with, she all of a sudden let go of the dishwasher, stood straight up, and took a few steps unassisted towards the back of the dishwasher. I couldn't believe it!! I started screaming that Jillian took her first steps and woke up poor Jeff who was napping on the couch. He completely missed it. She took a few more steps throughout the weekend, all of them completely caught me off guard with no camera. It was only one or two steps at a time but her confidence is slowly building and she is making so much progress!!! I have a feeling she is going to be running around here before we know it!!!

In Jillian's 14 month post, I mentioned how much she loves her Fisher Price Stroller Walker. I finally captured her strolling around with it on video this weekend. I knew I had to record this adorableness soon before she grew out of it and no longer needed a walker!! She looks so cute pushing around all of her little toys and dolls.



I hope you all had a nice weekend!!!

  6. You've reached a milestone in Jillian's life. Now you really on going to have your hands full. She'll probably be hard to keep up with once she really gets moving!

  7. Yay! Way to go Jillian!! Asher took his first steps this weekend too, but we went the traditional route and bribed him to do it with toys and treats. :o) He hasn't taken any more steps (bah) but it will come soon!

    I also love that J is still in Christmas PJs as well. Asher's are in his regular rotation until they either don't fit or it's too hot! ha!
