These Shoes Really ARE Made for Walkin'

It finally happened! Really, it finally did!

No, WM didn't pass Louie.
No, Katie hasn't finished the princess phase.
No, our horribly burnt-up-from-the-Oklahoma-sun yard hasn't come back.
No, I haven't gotten out my fall decorations.
And, no, I haven't gone and purchased these awesomely cute boots I spotted the other day.

What happened??

Baby Lam finally started walking! If you read my poem yesterday (God Bless your precious soul for reading it and returning to my blog today), then you heard a brief mention of the momentous occasion. It doesn't seem like it would be a big deal...but it is!

And for the record, let's get a few things straight:

1). She's not walking to get anywhere; she's doing it to show off.
2). She's only walking to get attention. In otherwords, she takes a few steps and if there isn't immediate applause then she gives us a good hoot 'n holler to wake us up to what's happening. Then we all jump up and down and clap and say "Yay!"
3). She only walks with shoes on.
4). She only walks in the morning and after bath time in the evening.
5). And, Patrick is NOT amused by the walking and is quite tired of all the attention it is creating for Baby Lam and will full out tackle her at any given walking moment.

I'm just glad she's doing it--hallelujah--soon I won't have to carry around that little tub of blub! Though I probably will because she's my baby and that's what mommies do to their littlest ones.

Here we go...taking some steps. (that's a weird picture of her, huh? I had to use it to show the walking).Whoa, look at me, I can dance and walk at the same time.

This is just a booty shot...'cuz she has a cute tushie.
Yay! I'm just glad that my baby is finally taking some steps. My goal is for her to be able to walk by Halloween--costumes look much cuter.

Woo whooo for Baby Lam! We're so proud of her and happy for you. I'm assuming your right arm is 10x stronger than the left. Here's to evening out your guns!
