Today is WALKING day!!!

We have four toddlers in our home who are not walking ..... until today!!! On this picture you see from left to right: Charles, 11 months old, Rose, almost 2 years old, Rafael, almost 2 years old and Nelson, 18 months old. This morning suddenly Rose started walking on her own, we have tried to help her, but every time she cried and was afraid. But this morning she stood up and walked! Everybody was clapping and shouting for her, which she really enjoyed and it stimulated her to walk again and again. During or supper (which we have on Saturdays and Sundays at the veranda) Charles started to walk, which gave also a lot of excitement to everybody, and then Rafael did two steps!!! This was so good, we yelled and clapped and he looked around as if he had walked the marathon! Then very quiet, Nelson did two steps as well. So I believe in a couple of days we have toddlers walking all over the place. And it was so good to see all the excitement from the older children, the aunties and the toddlers themselves. It was indeed a day with progress!
