Exciting news from the Arnold home!


Rachel is walking!! For the past month she's been able to take maybe one unstable step and then she'd fall down. For the past week or so, she's been able to take 2-3 steps ok, but nothing more. 
Today, we were at our friend's house and Jason was helping her walk to our friend Kay and she took about 5 steps... then 10... then 15! 
By the time we got home tonight she was walking clear across the room and letting go of furniture and walking on her own! She still hasn't figured out how to stand up all by herself, but we'll be there soon. 
Its so weird to see her walking! She seems way to big. :(

Way to go Rachel!

We know you just didn't want Kyle to feel like he was the only one who didn't walk until 15 months;)

Yay Rachel! Isn't it cute how once they figure out a new skill, they want to do it over and over again? Babies are so awesome. :-)
Look out now - she'll really be into everything.

Oh and PS - you feel bad having your 15 month old way, I met a mom yesterday who's 10-month old girl was walking nearly as well as Jenna (who's 16 months). I would have cried if Jenna walked that early. ;-)

kind of a fun fact... she took her first real steps on her 15 month birthday :)
