Big Little Steps...

I am sitting on the computer & from the lounge room where Ryder & Lo are I hear a ker-thunk. There isn't any screaming or crying associated with it so I continue typing. But there it is again, ker-thunk. And again, ker-thunk. The sound is getting louder!? I look over to the lounge room & there is my baby girl standing up, taking a couple of steps towards me & then landing on her bottom, ker-thunk. Each time she just got off her bottom & continued on her way.
This milestone in the making actually started last Friday, when at bit of coaching from grandma produced her 1st solo steps, a whole 3 in a row. Today 7 is now her person best & she is slowly spending more time trying to walk places, rather than crawling so I guess she will have it mastered before we know it.

oh yay! what a clever little girl. It is the funniest/cutest thing ever watching them take their first steps. My mum and I nearly wet our pants with laughter when Luca took his first steps. Then I think I started crying, I'm still not sure why.
