Big Day!!!!

Small news for today...I spy tooth number THREE!  It's the upper left tooth and has completely broken through with no swelling or anything.  She slept like junk last night, so I guess that could be why.  She wasn't upset, though, just tossing and turning a lot and not sleeping well.

But the BIG news is...

Baby Girl took unassisted steps! 

She's been strong enough and had the balance for it for awhile, but she hasn't been brave enough.  We kept thinking that the key would be to get a running start at it--get her walking, then let go and see her continue.  But that wasn't the case at all.  She took those first 3 steps while standing by herself.  The Hubby stood her up facing a friend of ours and when he held out his hands, she took three steps toward him until he snatched her up!  She then did it multiple times later--always starting from standing by herself.  She even took four steps to me earlier this evening--I just stood her up facing me and held out my hands and she took four tentative steps until she could tumble into my arms. 

The task for tomorrow, though, is to capture it on film...let's see if she cooperates!
