Like other mothers, I was also very excited about just everything of my baby- the first cry, first smile, first stand and of course the first steps. Indeed, baby’s first steps are an exciting milestone. My little angel ages two today, but the unforgettable moment of those tiny legs walking on their own is still fresh in my memories. Every mother has an exciting story of her baby’s first walk, but mine is something really exceptional. I bet you will love it.
My little Alice aged 13 months then. I was so excited to see here tiny legs walking. But every time my expectation to witness the “first steps” of my baby ended up with disappointments. There were certain complications in my pregnancy that consequently affected the health of Alice. The doctor already told me that she would take a little longer to walk.
However, that didn’t disappoint me anyway. Not only did I took best care of my baby’s health, but also doubled the efforts to strengthen her limbs. My efforts were bearing good results. Hence, my expectations to see my baby’s first steps at the earliest grew up. But I was a little disheartened when even after so many efforts Alice could walk without a support after she turned out to be of 12 months.
I began to lose hope. Still the ray of hope stood alive somewhere in the corner of my heart. It was 24th of December. We were all asleep. Then suddenly in the middle of the might I saw Alice was nowhere in the room. It was like a heart attack to me.
My mind was beginning to stuff with too many worries…What happened to my little baby? Where did she go? ….! And there is she, down the stairs. O wait, wait…I can’t believe my eyes. I see my baby start walking, my little Alice was walking around…and tears rolled down my eyes. It was the most joyous moment of my life. The very moment clock struck 12. I felt as if it wasn’t the pendulum, but Jesus wishing us “Merry Christmas!”.
