Her First Steps

She started walking this week. She just turned around and walked to her dad all on her own. I had been helping her for awhile but she usually would take a step or two and dive at me. I'd have to act fast and catch her. Now she has finally grasped the idea. Not running but balancing! She is so cute wobbling on those chubby legs. She is getting so big! Sorry the video is sideways. I did it with my cellphone and really didn't think about the fact that it would come out that way.

That is always a great great moment. Before you know it, she's up and running around like crazy and you are doing the same trying to keep up. Enjoy it.

Woo hoo! Time to put everything up a little higher. They grow up so fast. Next thing you know, she'll be asking for the keys to the car. ;o)

So cute. She walks pretty fast for someone who just learned. Fast learner.

I know what you mean about the comment challenge thing. It's more consuming than I thought. At first I thought, an average of 32 per day how bad can that be. I realized with two kids at home, it's not as easy as I thought.
