Movin', Movin', Movin'!

Abby decided today that she didn't need our help walking with her walker anymore.  She stood up at it and just took off!  We were both shocked that she just decided she could do it by herself after she'd been so timid.

I have to say, I got kind of emotional seeing Abby do this for the first time.  Although I know she will walk eventually, this is the first time that she has proven she can be independent.  Even if she never walks, she can at least move with a walker.  This is HUGE for her!

This 14th month (yes, tomorrow my girl will be 15 months old!!) has been really great for Abby's development.  In the last month, she has gone from knowing only one sign consistently to knowing 12.  She really studies our hands when we sign and tries to mimic what we do.  Abby has learned how to crawl this last month and is successfully getting into everything now!  And now, right at the back end of the 14th month, she can officially walk with her walker!  I can't wait to see what she'll be doing at the end of 15 months!!
