News Flash!


Video: WALKING

Yesterday, our granddaughter, Gwen, walked! By herself! She will be turning one year old next week. She is every bit her mother's daughter (and father's, too) being as precocious as Kelly was. Little do K & R know, but their world is going to get a lot busier as well as those eyes in the back of the head need to be up and running now.

We grandparents are simply over the moon at this new development! Go Gwen!

Surely that video can't be of her first solo steps. She's walking like a pro there!

Yup, life as they knew it is over...you go Gwennie! T.

Kathy said...

Yes, Michelle...Those were her first totally unassisted steps! She'd been trying but it all came to fruition at her daycare's Christmas Party!

Amen, Tina! ;-) Ross and Kelly are now going to find out just how fast a youngster can move!

She has been so close to this moment for some time, a couple of tentative steps and then realised that she had no support and promptly sat down, but now she is up and running so go Ross and Kelly she be away so quickly you won't believe it

Look at her go. She's already a woman with a mission. I love the expression on her face!

That isn't just a few steps; it looks like Gwen is approaching this with grim determination! NOT a surprise ;-)
