Last Friday, Maeve took her first steps.
She ambled across the living room, five little steps, with surprise written all over her face.
I just sat there, trying to hold in my excitement so as not to scare the crap out of her...
"That's it, girl, keep going! You got it," I quietly said.
When she plopped down, I went nuts, of course...
"Yay!!! You DID it! That's walking!! Yay, Maeve!!"
Now she loves to take our hands and step-step all over the place, letting go now and then when the urge moves her.
While (speed)crawling is still her main mode of transport, it's fun to see her confidence grow every day.
Toddlerhood is upon us.
