Below is a YouTube video of Gabriel walking last Tuesday for the first time all by himself. Of course he did it at daycare and we didn't get to see it. But I captured it on video to watch this moment over and over again. Does it possibly get any sweeter than this??
Gabriel had been walking with us while holding our hands. But he tooks his first steps all by himself last Tuesday, Nov 4, 2008. To say that watching this video moves me beyond words, is putting it mildy. Watching him take those steps are simply priceless. You might not see what I see, but that is why we love our kids above anyone else's. The smallest of achievements are like winning gold in the US Olympics.
