First Steps!

Savannah has taken her time learning to walk. So far, she just hasn't been confident enough to try it on her own. She can push her walking toys for miles (well, maybe not 'miles') and does great as long as she has a tight hold of someone's hand, but has been very hesitant to take that first step. Yesterday, Cole put her down and turned his back and I'm almost positive I saw her take 2 steps. And then today, we were all in her room playing with her and she was rocking in her little rocking chair and when Cole lied down with his knees up, she stood up and walked to his knees! It was only about 3 steps, but we were shocked! Since then, she's done it several more times. She definitely does it best if SHE's the one deciding to do it and we're not trying to make her. I was taking a video of her before bed tonight trying to capture some more of her fancy dance moves and was lucky enough to get some of those first steps on film! So, here it is. The beginning of a whole new world...
By the way, we usually don't let her stand this close to the TV!

Love it! Andrew probably has a little while until he's walking. He'll cruise and walk with his push toy, but he's not ready to do it on his own. Hope y'all are doing well. Miss you.

Well, she's walking before you did! can't wait to see that little angel again! Gaga loves her and Savannah loves Papa (isn't that the way it is with Grandpas?!).
