I came home to a miracle today....

When I got home from work today, I found this waiting for me:



Yep, that's Riley walking completely on his own, without his walker! I burst into tears and gave him a zillion hugs and kisses! There are no words for how proud I am! He went back and forth from the couch to the table at least 20 times! Then, a few minutes later he did this:




How exciting is that?????

Oh my god! How amazing!

I thought it might just be a matter of time with the way he was cruising around in his walker!

That's so great. It gives me hope for Ms Hannah!:)

That is so awesome, I remember how I felt when my son started walking at 2 1/2, it was awesome.

Melissa, Thanks so much for your post on our blog! I loved the video of Riley walking, that's so awesome and very encouraging. Your little duo are both so cute! I have a question, I noticed Riley's walker has black padding around the hips, did that come with it and what is it for? Ours is a loaner from the rehab center and doesn't have anything like that.
