These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

These boots are made for walkin', and that's just what they'll do....
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you...

That song was just a flashback to my middle school years in the choir room. Mr. Beeck used to have us sing that. I wonder why?

Anyway, the good news this week is that Annie is finally up on two feet and WALKING!!!! Yay, Annie!

We are pretty sure that she could've been walking already for weeks now, but she is just really, really stubborn. I wonder where she gets that trait from?
On Sunday afternoon, after a full day of crawling on cement and little pebbles, Annie decided that she should try walking. So she did. On her first attempt she walked 50 steps without falling. She then started pivoting, going up inclines, down inclines, around obstacles, standing on one foot and hopping, doing jumping jacks... just kidding. She hasn't quite done the one foot and hopping or jumping jacks yet, but I think that is next on her list of things to do.

We sent out the message to our family. ANNIE IS WALKING! It was wonderful news to share.

So, here is a little video that Joanna shot of Annie walking. This was taken last night at church while I was in choir rehearsal. If you tend to get motion sickness, you might want to drop a Dramamine now before you view it.
