Walk On

Two weeks ago, Millie's doctor said she was concerned that Millie was 15 months and not walking. (Remember this video I posted? It ended up being the extent of her tries.) She told us that a therapist would be coming over to evaluate her for developmental delays. While I felt like Millie could walk if she wanted to, I was still a little worried.

This week, Amelia's therapist came over so I could fill out paperwork for her. She laughed at the way she bounced around everywhere, and told us she'd call later to schedule the actual evaluation.

And today, she called us. But we had to cancel before she even scheduled anything- because this happened:



Apologies to my Facebook friends who have already see this. At 15 and 1/2 months, she just decided it was time, and I'm a proud mama!

ggahh! yay! When she pulled herself up and sky turned around...I cracked up. For me, it was amazing to see that moment when she figured out on her own how to pull herself up.
Thanks for sharing :)

Oh, goodness! That bounce is disarmingly cute! And I love that she did all of this while carrying her brush around. That girl has her priorities straight!

Seriously, cutest video ever! She just wanted to walk on her own time! :)
And I love how she is breathing hard in the video like shes working hard! so cute!! yay MILLIE!!! watch out now mama she's walking!!

MrsMcDancer said...

Yay Millie! I think she was just being stubborn because she looks like a walking machine. She probably strengthened her legs with all that bouncing!

I have to share with you that my son did what we called butt bouncing. The same way that Millie bounces. He did NOT walk until he was 14.5 months old. He will be 4 in 4 days and he is perfect, healthy and smart. No need to worry momma (I know I know, easier said than done). I am sorry that she had you all worrying. I loved watching the video! Thank you for sharing with me.
