First off, I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. Ours was really wonderful. I had Scott's sister Wendy over with her husband and their grand daughter Aarylin.
Penny is just so close to walking and I am so excited!! I don't remember this whole process with Nathaniel, probably because it was so quick - no time to enjoy it. Penny has been standing up in the middle of the room countless times a day and more often then not, she will take one little hop-like step. She then shakes her hands with excitement and pride, then falls. It is so adorable. Sometimes she takes 2 steps. Today after her nap, I walked her one-handed from her bedroom to my bedroom and then 2 steps away from my bed I let go. She took the two steps to the bed so she could get closer to her daddy. Yesterday morning, she took 5 steps from the dinner table toward me. I just love her so much!!
Her 2nd birthday is coming up next month and I really want to have a super birthday for her. She had been through so much and I am really looking forward to celebrate the anniversary of her birth. I just can't think of the perfect idea yet. Anyone who wants to come to the Hartford area and celebrate Penny's birthday with me shoot me an e-mail. It will be on May 30. Again, just not sure what the festivities will be yet.
