Today was GREAT. Evie is now taking not one, not two, not three or four, but FIVE TO SIX steps on her own! You can just tell she WANTS to walk because she will falter and look about to sit down, but STOP herself and stay standing and then keep taking steps. She is going to be walking in no time! I really think so! She is starting to do it even just in the midst of play, not to a person when coaxed.
Lily on the other hand, has NO interest it seems. She just lunges forward toward you or goes to her knees. She is doing better walking with one hand held instead of two. But I think she is always in such a hurry that she tries to walk too fast and falls. So she does bother trying... That's my thoughts anyway!
They are doing so well right now! Things are coming together. And it's funny that is has been a few days since their original due date when I was thinking about their development and presto, it feels like they are moving better already. Even the speech therapist said they are chewing wonderfully, starting to take an interest in imitating our actions, not words or sounds yet, but hey, something it better than nothing. And I SWEAR today when we got home I was repeating HOME to Evie and she came out with "ome" twice in a row. I didn't think it was a coincidence, she was looking out the car window and staring at the house...it was so cool!
Now, on to "mama", "dada" and walking!
