Thankful Thursday

Disclaimer: You will hear the words ‘excitement, exciting, excited’ a lot so be warned! Not because I don’t have other alternative words to use but because I just want to use these words. Hope you enjoy reading:

Ahhh!! She’s almost there. As I cringe with great excitement watching my daughter recently take a couple of steps. She’s been doing it little by little every now and then, depending on me to hold her hand just like in the pictures below.

Yesterday she surprised me even more. I just can’t get it out as I’m writing because it was a moment that I cherished. Kizzy’s bestie, Lydia, and her mom, Kristin, were with us yesterday along with a mutual friend. She loves her Aunty so much that I think she wanted to show off. All of a sudden, as we were just sitting and chatting, Kizzy got up on her own and took a few steps. She fell some times but her persistence got us all. I couldn’t even capture the moment, not because I didn’t want to, but I was soaking it all in. Also, whenever I pull out my phone to take a video, she will fall so I said “forget it.” I’m sure moms out there can attest to what I’m saying.

Hubby was at work very late so I didn’t get a chance to tell him until this morning. He jumped out of bed with excitement, kissed her and told her all the mushy things a dad would tell his daughter. Then he asked her to walk for him and she did it!! We were just full of excitement this morning that I’m praying we didn’t wake our neighbors up.

Needless to say, our daughter is finally taking steps on her own and we are excited. I know she’s not fully running all over the place but we are very happy to know she’s taking a giant leap of faith to step out. We are very thankful for our princess, Keziah. Keep making your parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and all those that love you proud. This is just the beginning so be on the lookout for more updates to come.

Leave in the comment section below to tell me some exciting things that happened in your life recently. Hope your day is filled with excitement!
