YES! We have finally done it! Natalie is finally walking!!! This morning, Grandma came to visit, and Natalie took two very small, scared steps. Immediately after that she screamed and cried like it was the most traumatic thing ever. It was very strange and made us question if the child would ever walk!
Later, we were at a garage sale and the lady running the sale was talking about her daughter not walking at fifteen months, but she walked the first day they went to physical therapy. Honestly, that really upset me because I hated the idea of Natalie needing to go to therapy because she wasn't walking.
I guess Natalie felt bad about upsetting me, because later on this evening, we were playing a game where Natalie was putting my shoes on, so I put her shoes on. I stood her up...and she just went! She took 4 steps without stopping! Soon after that, she took like 10 steps at a time--- many times! They are still very cautious steps, but she is doing it all by herself!!!

|Pretty as a peacock!|
|We had Natalie sitting on the turtle, but she wanted to stand- something about symbolism- don't ask me.|
|Nattie LOVED this goat.|
|The donkey could not have cared less that we were ogling it.|
|Natalie loved every animal she saw. This was in the "Outback Walkthrough" area of the zoo.|
|I like this shot of Mommy and Natalie on the go.|
|Obligatory "look at us at the zoo!" shot.|
|This Gibbon was hilarious- he was maxing and relaxing and did not let our presence bother him one bit.|
|Another obligatory "look at us at the zoo!" shot.|
|Kissing her new Barney doll.|
|Natalie was a little hesitant about the Barney ride when it was actually in motion, but she loved seeing it.|
|New best friend.|
|"YES!!!" (This is her in the middle of her fist-pumping excited pose)|
