And they're off!

Abbey started toddling awhile ago, and was slowing walking more and more each day. Luke was really not showing much interest. He would walk along just fine if you held his hand, but he had only taken one or two steps all on his own.

Until Mother's Day, that is.

That afternoon, I was sitting on the living room floor playing with the babies and watched as Luke pulled himself to a stand and took three or four steps from the chair to their play house. Then, he let go of the house and took four steps towards the kitchen. Then, he took off and walked the entire length of the hallway. And he's been walking ever since! It was one of the craziest things I've seen and if I hadn't watched it with my own eyes I probably wouldn't have believed it!

One really fun thing about that was seeing how happy Abbey was for her brother. She followed him all around clapping and laughing - it was SO CUTE!!

Here's a glimpse at our world lately:
