Breaking News!! First Steps!

We've seen Ella take a step here and there, but haven't reported it because it seemed to be just an anomaly. Throwing herself forward and keeping her legs under her long enough for one step just didn't seem like WALKING. Yesterday, however, she took 4 steps from Daddy to Mama. We tried to catch it on camera, and she refused to comply and do it again. Last night I dreamed she was racing everywhere this am, and got out the camera just in case. While I wouldn't call it RACING, the little vid here shows that she is, indeed, taking her first steps! Daddy kept a hand in part of the time, just to make sure she didn't fall far, but she was doing the moving and balancing on her own!

That's so adorable! I wish we were closer so Oliver and Ella could get into trouble together. :)
