The Story behind the photos:
Maegan tried to start walking when she was more than 1. But before she was 1, she was already talking and well, according to superstitious grandparents, not to worry because you can't do both at the same time or something to that effect. Anyways, Maegan was really babied. Always carried. Almost never let off by herself so when she grew a little, she keeps on insisting her independence. We started her with a walker, as you see in the picture. But soon enough, she started walking on her own.
Paul has a different story. Even before he turned 11 months, he would stand inside the crib. He would run around it. Trying to hold the edges or shoot his fingers through the net so he can move around the crib. When he gets tired, he crawls. I have a theory that Paul was just so challenged by the fact that his sister could go where she pleased that he had to do it too. He started to walk by feeling his way around the sofa and grasped everything he could so he could walk. Before he was 1, he could walk a few steps. On his first birthday, he was walking around his party. It was just fun and so encouraging.
I seriously had to search high and low for these photos. It was so much fun though. At least, when I lose them or it gets old, hopefully I can go back to this blog and see them all again.
