Smarty Pants

My children really showed off their talents this weekend.

Apparently, Victoria is tired of not being able to walk, so she took matters into her own hands and borrowed Great's walker!

She was so proud! She walked back and forth across the kitchen five times!
I wonder where I can get one in her size?

Not to be outdone, Francesca decided to learn to read on her own.

Isabella and Anastasia (with their friend, Logan) started a leaf raking business to make money for the homeless! They have made $5 so far!

Catherine is writing my name!

Hmmmm.......well, he is quite creative at clearing the table.


  1. WOW! When you get to Shriner's they can get one for you, or go online. There are pediatric walkers. Our son had one when he was 18 months old.

  2. OH MY GOODNESS!! You go Victoria. You go Girl!! Crying seeing her holding on to that walker. I would LOVE to have her nannies back East see her so proud and proper like that!!! You go Victoria!!!

  3. Way to go Victoria!!!!! Nothing is gonna hold that girl back!!!
    Isabella and Anastasia I'm very proud of you!!

  4. That's amazing, I mean Francesca being able to read. What a prodigy! Victoria looks so sweet behind the walker. Radio flyer has some great weighted walkers but they are expensive.

  5. I say pick one up at a yard sale for Victoria, that size looks perfect!

  6. Those baby girls are amazing! Makes me cry seeing Victoria walking. It is amazing how much she has changed in such a short time.

  7. A complete pack of over achievers!! AWESOME!!

    This one on Ebay is only $55 with free shipping :)

  9. What an amazing girl she is. I think I remember you saying one time that you believed she would. but to do it so SOON is amazing.

  10. Oh, be still my heart! I cannot believe she's up and going like that! Great job Victoria! I just know that she's going to be out of here in no time at all. Just don't give her the keys yet to family-mobile!

  11. Your local Easter Seals may be able to loan you a pediatric walker. http://northgeorgia.easterseals.com/site/PageServer?pagename=GADR01_homepage Or you could get her a kid shopping cart and put a 5lb bag of flour in it so it doesn't roll away from her! SOOO excited to see her upright!
