A Monumental Moment

Yesterday, Ella got to spend an hour wtih me at work and then we went to our church's Wed. night fellowship dinner and prayer meeting. I love having Ella up here. Well, the girls in the office decided this was the day to teach Ella to walk. So Corey, Natalie, Jennifer and I got in a circle and tried and tried to get her to walk. We tried bribing her with chocolate (her fave) and ice but none would work. Then all of the sudden she walked FOUR steps!! All by herself!!! We all screamed and cheered her on! It was a very exciting moment and I was so glad I got to share it with friends! But my joy went beyond her walking because you know why she finally decided to take those 4 steps? No, it wasn't the chocolate, no it wasn't the Sonic ice (although who can resist that), it was ME! That's right, it was out of her desperation to get to me because she had started to get upset. I felt so loved! Now, I wouldn't say that she has started walking because we definitely couldn't get her to do it again, but what a great start. It's going to be anyday now.

Way to go baby girl! You're amazing!!
