It is absolutely amazing what Charlotte is learning to do. We began trying to get her to walk behind her "hippo" a long time ago. First, we had to teach her to hang on to the handle. Then, we weighed the hippo down with bb's and those rice packs that you warm in your microwave, put cardboard on the wheels, and still, we had hold on to her and slow the pace down so Charlotte would have enough time to move her feet without doing a face plant. Today, we are proud to say that she took her first independent steps behind the hippo, and was quite proud of herself. She did it over and over again, and it was only weighed down by the bb's and cardboard. It brough tears to my eyes again tonight as we watched the video when we finished putting it together. I truly feel like I am "walking on sunshine" today. She makes us so proud.
WAY TO GO CHARLOTTE!
