Rachel Walked On Her Own!

Rachel likes to walk around while holding our hand. But tonight she took about 5 steps completely on her own. It was so exciting. I was sitting on the floor in her room putting away some of her toys and she was crawling all around upstairs playing with Nicholas. She crawled into her doorway, grabbed a toy and stood up on her own without grabbing on to something to pull herself up. I smiled and cheered for her accomplishment. She got excited and just started walking towards me. I was able to call out to Stuart and Nicholas in time for them to see her last few steps before she plopped back down to the floor. It's so exciting but at the same time I see another door to her babyhood starting to close as she inches towards a new milestone. Motherhood, full of exciting (and a bit tearful) moments...
