I Think I See Pigs Flying

We've had an exciting week.....well, month, really. We have about 9 posts lined up to share about all our recent excursions, but I had to get this one in first.

Billy and I never thought we'd see this day come. But the stars aligned just right, Hell froze over and pigs are a-flyin'! Danna FINALLY took her first steps on July 1st at just over 19 months of age. Our little 1 lb 10 oz miracle princess finally decided she'd had enough of the boys walking all over her. Sure, we had to trick her to walk because she thought I was still holding on to her overall straps.....but I still chalk that up as a success in my book!

We hope you enjoy the video. You may have to wear ear plugs while watching because Danna and Pius were both partaking in WhineFest 2009. The constant dull roar is something we've learned to tune out for the past 19 months. Take special note of Pius at the end.....he gives Danna a congratulatory tackle and shove (and then claps for her).

Yay for Danna! We're so proud of you, little girl!

Yay Danna! You go girl! Oh, and I had to laugh (sorry ;) ) when she and Pius were voicing their opinions. Too funny (just because I see that here sometimes too :P )!

Thanks for sharing!

Danna - We are so proud of you girl. You are just to adorable. For the first time walking she sure did go a long way. She will be running in a month, you just watch! I can't wait to hear what other things you all have been up to.

I bet Danna really knew you weren't holding her and was mad because she realized she would have to walk for herself from now on... Life sucks like that! lol Great job Danna!! Can't wait to see you walk for me!

Way to go Danna! What a sturdy and lengthy little walk for your first time...

Moni, I always figured she was secretly figuring out how to just "get up and go" someday! What a smart little girl you have:)

Ashley Wasser said...

Just a thought.... maybe if you put the proper length pants on that poor child she might have caught on sooner.

Just me thinking outloud.

Go Danna Banana Go!!!!!

Oh Dear Randy (FWGNFL).....what have we said about you thinking? ESPECIALLY when it's thinking out loud. That's just a bad scenario all around, love.

And anyways, maybe if Danna would GROW a little taller, all her pants wouldn't be so big (I know you have a similar problem, which is why you are sympathizing so much for her). She's just being lazy, staying that size!

Love and miss you!

Moni, that's HUGE, mama! Celebrating with all of you! The last one gets the most praise...you know she was holding out for the glory!

Side note, I was so relieved to watch that video and know that at least we'll be deaf together someday from Noise Induced Hearing Loss. Deaf and Insane, of course! =)

Love you, Mama! So proud of you!
