Walk-a, Walk-a, Walk-a

Baby Girl took her very first steps a few weeks ago, one Sunday morning.   They came just minutes after the Mister walked in the door from a red-eye flight, which had returned him to us after two weeks in California.  And they landed her squarely in his arms.  

Her excitement just bubbled up and spilled out in steps.

We didn't see any more walking for a bit, until the Mister came home to us at the end of five-week stretch, where he had spent four weeks out of town.

The next morning, Baby Girl once again made a run for her Daddy's arms.

This time, it stuck.  Ten steps in a row, a graceful bend to her knees, a little clapping for herself, followed by the sign for more.  And more and more.

I love her sweet little pants of breath as she is so excited to be on her feet. She's got some pretty great coaches, too!

This is the sweetest thing I've seen all week! I love the part of the video where she backs herself up so she do it again! You can just see her thinking "you guys, I've got this!" Lovely documentation of such a sweet time.
