Yesterday was an exciting day at our house! For most of the past week, Elizabeth has been practicing walking back and forth from one person to the other--and doing very well! But yesterday, Elizabeth took four steps across the room AWAY from Mommy all by herself! (Of course, you'll have to just take my word on that since she and I were the only two witnesses and I couldn't grab the camera fast enough to document the milestone event!) When she stopped, she simply stood there for about a half second, carefully lowered her little bottom to the ground, then turned around to grin at Mommy as if to say, "Did you see what I just did?!?!"
Since I don't have "first steps" pictures, we'll just have to settle for this one of her practicing her pageant wave as though she is the Queen of the Rose Parade! She spends about half of her playtime climbing on and off of this little airplane ride-on that Grandma and Grandpa got her for her birthday...and the other half on a little ride-on/pushtoy that Nancy, Dick, Sharon, and Bill got her, or opening and closing the door to her little coupe! She LOVES those things!
