First Steps!

We've waited a long time for this! Gwyneth has finally taken her first few steps by herself! They're still very shaky, and it will probably be a while longer before she's really able to walk, but we're very excited!!! We shot the two videos below with my phone tonight before bed!

I needed this today. I needed to see a miracle. I needed to see something that I prayed for come to fruition. Thank you for sharing this.

WOW!! FANTASTIC!! Our almost 22 month old, born at 40 weeks, 1 day only started walking a month ago? Started off shakey, and now she won't stop. Gwyneth is walking sooner than she :) CONGRATS!! They all do it in their own time....

Much love and congrats!

That is so amazing! I love it! I don't comment much but have read your story from the beginning! Your family is an inspiration! I'm a NICU nurse and a NICU mom...although my NICU baby is now 11. It's a rewarding journey as a nurse and a mom. Enjoy YOUR journey!!
