Magical Moments - First Steps!

We've had a very good week. We've seen Bridgette eating and drinking more than ever before in her life. She also has 4-5 super wet diapers a day, another wonderful and unexpected new first for us.

Bridgette's been progressing quickly this week too. She's pulling to stand quite easily, she's been willing to hold on with just one hand as she cruises or takes our fingers, she's climbing more, and she's improving on stairs.

Then today, I was lucky enough to witness her first steps! The first two successes were not caught on film, but fortunately I had just emptied the flash drive and charged the battery last night, so our camera was only one room away and ready to go!

The video shows her with Betsy, her physical therapist.
