Braceless = Spaceless

So for the past 2 years,  Lizzie has slept with this on her feet,

a brace that made it quite difficult to walk or to get out of bed at night to go to the bathroom or to come downstairs after a bad dream.  I would often hear her screams gentle call at night for Mommie when she needed to go potty or just needed - me!

So, the other night, I heard something I have never heard before.

I heard the soft pitter patter of Lizzie's perfect little feet - on the stairs - and then, there she was - in the bed - with us.  She had had a bad dream - and had walked down the stairs - all - by - herself!

Another first - after 2 years of being home!!  This is what I saw when I woke up the next morning...

I realize the flood gates may have opened up here and we may be "spaceless" in our bed for a while, but -I - don't - care!

Lizzie, I will save your spot, sweet girl!!!!


  1. Awesome!!!
    I love the way her free feet are all curled up and snuggly there.
    I'm so glad she has reached this milestone!


  2. Congratulations Lizzie!! Next she'll be sneaking into the cookie jar and watching TV late at night while everyone is asleep just because she can do it!

  3. So, so sweet, and what wonderful news!
