it's happening! that's all i keep saying to myself. every time i see maya get up and start walking i feel a sense of calmness. it seems strange but i feel calm inside...content that my little bugger is getting around more on her hind legs. she has started to take her own steps here and there, without us even saying a word to her about it. 15 steps here 20 steps there. she even has surprised me and has walked into the room when i didn't expect it.
oh my goodness! it's sooooo much fun to see where she is going...i just watch with wonder. besides the calmness in my mind...i have started to feel a little bit of anxiety. that is so funny, two extreme opposites, huh?! yes, calm because she is finally getting into walking...and anxiety because she is walking towards objects that she could potentially fall onto or hit when she loses her balance. i know this is what all mom's go through so i'm not too stressed about it. i would never trade these feelings for anything, because hearing her little feet go pitter-patter is music to my ears.
