april 3, 2009...a day that will go down in infamy...

{well, at least in the layton household...}

my dear, sweet friend, dyan, watches you once a week while i teach piano. on wednesday i got an email from her saying that she was thinking about you a lot after she left on tuesday...and thought maybe it might help you walk if we tied a ribbon to your wrist so you couldn't let go, but we could slacken the ribbon, if needed. BRILLIANT {and an answer to a desperate prayer on monday night}. so i tried it that day and it WORKED!

yup, little turkey, you took 26 steps as your "first step"! today you were even standing up on your own and walking from there.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY Leah! We are so proud of you and all your hard work.

yes, i cried.
and smiled.
and cheered.
