Crawling. And standing. And cruising. Oh my!

When it happens, it happens. One day Morgan Kate is crawling. The next day she is pulling to a stand and in that very same day she starts cruising. Morgan Kate started officially crawling last Monday and it has only improved since. She is now faster, more steady and moving everywhere. Today during therapy she pulled to a stand numerous times and even began cruising. I was absolutely blown away.

And if all of that isn't enough. Check out this video. Not only is she crawling, and standing and cruising, but she is also talking. Kind of. Another new one for us. MK has been making noises and very quiet sounds for awhile now, but until yesterday she wasn't making any distinct sounds or consonant sounds or words. Matter of fact, she has a speech evaluation next Wednesday. But, look who's talking now.

I have been in tears for the past two days. Not tears of sadness or tears of pain, but tears of absolute joy!

Wow, she was telling us all about how lucky she is to have such a great mommy and daddy! I know that just melts your heart to hear her talking away! I can't wait to see her this weekend and see all these fabulous things she's doing. Love you guys!

Everything clicked with Brandon suddenly too shortly after he turned 1. He started crawling, pulled to stand, and cruising all within a 48 hour period. They are amazing. He loves to cruise all over now but is still afraid to let go and try to take some steps on his own.

I love the video with her two tiny little teeth. That smile is preciouse.
