Maia is Walking...

...and I missed it! I'm at work and my Mom just called to tell me that Maia's walking all over the place! I'm so proud of my big girl, but so sad I missed the big moment. Luckily enough, though this is the first major milestone I've really missed (with the exception of Momma feeding Maia her first bite of baby food...).

Where has the time gone? This time last year I was still hugely pregnant and wouldn't give birth for 3 more weeks and now my baby can eat mashed potatoes and walk! :eek:

I guess I won't have to worry about losing weight now. I should run it off chasing after her!

Yay Maia!! definitely hard on Mama to miss milestones. If it makes you feel any better I think we miss big ones all the time, even when we're home to see them. Just because it's the first time someone has seen it doesn't mean it's the first time its happened. You still get to enjoy the first day she showed she could walk. there's always more milestones Biggrin

welcome to the dark side Maia! muahahaha! Now shes going to wear you out non-stop! Smile I agree with PP, just because some of us moms stay home, doesnt mean we never miss milestones. my son rolled over back to front and i didnt even get to see. he was laying on his back one min, and when i walked back to check on him he was on his tummy. boo. but i made him do it again so I could record it. Smile

Thanks, ladies! I was sad to have missed it but it was fun watching her do it when I could. The little snot only seems to want to walk on rare occasions, though. I guess it's hard and crawling is faster. LOL

Looking at the vid now I'm thinking I should have taken that toy out of her mouth. Don't want her to fall on it! :eek:
