Sunday Night Feats of Amazing Stuff

Three little steps last night.

Those three little steps were absolutely mind blowing and if husband hadn't been there to witness her wonderful first steps all done while holding the following three letters in crammed in her little hands, I doubt anyone would have believed me. The first steps combined with the letters in the right order were overwhelming. Not that I'm bragging or nothin' but she clearly is a genius and this was not some random coincidence. The fact that those particular letters were three of only six letters on the fridge has absolutely no statistical significance in the likelyhood of a baby selecting and carrying those particular three letters around in her chubby little hand. No way. She's special.

Honestly though, all in all she didn't seem that impressed by her achievements of both walking for the first time and successfully spelling my newest moniker which leads me to think she's probably been walking and spelling every single time I've turned my back or left the room.

And to think she managed to reach this milestone with me pushing her down every time she tried to balance on her two feet. She really is a trooper.

I'm so impressed with the truly brilliant Bumper! Next thing you know she'll be potty trained while reciting multiplication tables.

Well, I hear you are in trouble now, the dreaded walking. But I am sure, as you suspected, Bumper's been walkign to the fridge late at night, spelling out secret messages to the intelligent beings in the universe. You think I'm joking...
