Last Monday I was playing with Arianna and she was standing. I let go of her hands and beckoned her to attempt to come to me. She took two steps forward and on the third she fell in to my arms. I was very proud of her and it was obvious that she was just as proud. She laughed and squealed and hugged me. In her own excitement she was unable to compose herself to enough to try again. She crawled around in a sense of accomplishment.
When Kim came home I told her all about it and she remarked that she got Arianna to walk last Wednesday and had forgotten to tell me. My heart sank, but in her defense, I am rarely home because of school and work.
