man oh man...

i just can't contain my excitement, so humor me for a sec:

Leah stood on her own today. Really! She did! It was only for a few seconds (5 tops), but it was HUGE. I was walking with her when I decided to switch my hand from holding onto her fingers to holding her wrist. That way, she couldn't hang on to me with her death grip when I wanted to let go. She was coming toward me and I let go...and she stood. On her own. All by herself. No help from me whatsoever. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY LEAH!

When she was finished, she crouched down rather than completely falling. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY LEAH!

I screamed with joy. So she started to scream too. It was pretty funny.

Since i obviously don't have a picture of it, this will have to suffice. I think these are my favorite shoes she has ever owned. Love them.
