Look who's walking!

16 1/2 months old and you started to walk on your own! You took about 8 steps from Daddy to Mommy the night before we left you with Grammy and Grandpa for the first overnight trip ever! Of course while we were gone you started full on walking! Thank god Grandpa got it all on video. About 2 days later you continued to walk, run, and dance! It's like you've been doing this walking thing your whole life!
While Mommy and Daddy went white water rafting in Maine, you slept over Grammy and Grandpas house for the first time. You were a good girl, and even slept for a little bit while you were there. We missed you a lot and were ready to come home to see you!
It's an amazing journey watching you grow. You are becoming so independent and want to do everything on your own. Now that you are walking you really are not a little baby anymore. As much as I miss the days of cuddling you in my arms nothing beats you running over to Mommy and Daddy to give us a kiss in the middle of playtime. Each stage in your life continues to bring us so much joy. There is no better gift we could have than waking up to you everyday and having you teach us how to love over and over.
We hold her hands....She holds our hearts!
