Breaking news!!!! Kiggster is close to walking now! I had to go to a function last night related to work so I did not get home until late. This morning Honey was telling me how last night he was in the living room with Kiggster and she was playing and forgot that she needs to hold onto stuff to walk. She took 2 steps before falling-I guess that’s when she realized that she forgot to hold on and maybe got scared. Reminds me of this scripture in Matthew 14: 27-31
But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
Kiggster doubted her ability to walk without assistance and she fell after two steps. But 2 steps is amazing still! It’s been several weeks since she had last taken her steps so it’s amazing she did it. So while Honey was telling me about this, Kiggster was playing in the living room again. She handed me a toy and wanted me to give it back to her. Well, I took a couple steps back and put the toy out for her to reach. I thought she would get on her knees and start crawling towards the toy because I knew it was just a little far for her to reach-she’d either have to walk or crawl to get it. SHE TOOK 5 STEPS!!!! She didn’t hold onto anything, didn’t hesitate, she just did it! Amazing right?! It was great, we clapped, we laughed and she was excited too! I’m so excited for her to hit this new milestone, she going through so many changes at the same time right now, it must be overwhelming for her ’cause I know it is for me! She’s learning to walk, crawling faster, growing in her 2 top teeth, and babbling a lot more like she’s a “chatty Kathy!” Yup people have called her that! I’m proud, excited and scared at the same time-she’s growing up so fast! I have an inkling that she’s definitely gonna be walking by her birthday party in 2 weeks. AHHH 2 weeks! I am so not ready, I have so many plans and things to prepare and food menu to think about and cook! I still have to make her dress! I found this awesome fabric for it too!
So I am thinking about entering a bow challenge (just a small one from one of the companies that I bought the tutorials from) with the Holidays theme. I was thinking of making her a Christmas headband and entering that but I will need all of your help voting for my creation to win! I don’t mind revealing her Xmas headband since I will probably make her a whole month of “winter” headbands to wear during December, I love Christmas! Although I should probably make her a Thanksgiving/Fall one too! Oh choices! Which holiday should I choose?!
Remember how I mentioned last week that Kiggster learned some new tricks on being tricky? Well, we weren’t kidding, here’s proof…
She’s so funny right?! Totally just crackin’ herself up! I don’t know who taught her this but now we like to do it to her, which she thinks is funny too!
