One foot in front of the other...

All parents are excited when their child starts to walk, but I have to say we are absolutely exstatic!!! So you see Cade is 19 months old - that's right 19 months and just barely started walking. We just couldn't believe it, we were starting to think it might never happen. We have gone through many emotions about this over the past several months. We have been worried, frustrated, annoyed, and humbled. Cade was a late crawler and people told me stores of their kids or someone they knew whose kid crawled late and then didn't end up walking until 18 months or so. My first reaction was that my kid is different and there is no way he'll take that long, ummm I was wrong! I started to get really worried that something was wrong with him, but the doctor assured me he was perfectly healthy, just had a good case of stubborness (wonder where he gets that from). And I have to admit I got really annoyed and really jealous when I saw any baby his age or younger walking. We tried everything to get him to walk, but nothing worked. I guess he just wasn't ready. Our timeline and the Lord's were not in sync. So after many prayers he is now walking and he looks like such a big boy. We are so proud of him! And we had to post this video to prove that it's real :)
