Go Kaela!!!


Update: better picture (I think) from Matt's phone. I just love those chubby short legs :)

I downloaded about 250 pictures today so that I could post some of them, and then Kaela goes and does something major! More blog worthy then anything I could have written an hour ago :) Kaela stood up on her own! Matt was giving Will a bath and of course Kaela has to be part of everything, so she went crawling back to the bathroom. My sister called me just then because I had just sent her about half of those pictures I downloaded, to tell me how cute they are when Matt yelled for me to come to the bathroom. At first I thought something was wrong, so I run to the bathroom to find Kaela pulling herself up to a standing position! We were sooo excited. Obviously being 11 months she is a little behind on this (who really cares!) which I think almost made it more exciting. I of course ran to get my camera to find that the batteries were dead! Go figure. So I ran to get my other camera and Matt took some with his phone. (we also did a little video until that died too). I wanted to get on and share Kaela's exciting news with all of you! I'll try and get better pics next time. Remeber, her legs are pretty bowed so although it may not appear that she's standing, she is...her feet can not go straight on the floor due to the curve in her legs, but she's doing it the way she knows how!! YEA! I hope you enjoy the pictures.

That's awesome for Kaela!! I remember the first time we saw Peyton do it (at about a year) we were just as excited! Kaela is just so cute-and it amazing what motivation older brothers and sisters are!

OMG!!! How exciting Kaela! She kind of looks like Cole from behind...a little! I know they had different conditions, but I do see a little of my baby! Congrats mama on this big milestone. We, parents of LP's, deserve to get this excited over the "little" things that average parents take for granted!

That is soooo amazing! I am so happy for you, for Kaela, for her milestone! That is so exciting and absolutely blogworthy! I also love the new pics of her and Will. He looks like such a little boy. I feellike he and Preston would get along so great.
Congrats to Kaela!

Major milestone!!!
And it's funny how when you really want the camera - the batteries are dead in every one of them - it happens to us all the time.
I love the pic of Kaela laying on the floor - she is just precious. Will is looking extra big boy too - its sad how quickly they grow up.

We should plan on a trip next summer to WI Dells as it is about half way and a lot of fun. Will try to get to MI though too...Love you guys.
