One Small Step

I should have recognized the look of determination on her face...

Last night Caitlin took her first steps.

It was after dinner playtime and we were all up in her nursery. She stood up and took one small step. The Irishman and I looked at each other and questioned if that really had been it, so she stood up and did it a second time.

The rest of the evening was spent unsuccessfully trying to catch her new trick on video. She did it over and over small step and then a fall to the floor. She does not seem phased by these run-ins with gravity, and I have a feeling that she will be walking in no time.

Not sure if I'm ready for that though!

I was thinking exactly what the first person was thinking...the "look of determination" is absolutely adorable! Love it! I'm so happy and excited for you that you were able to be there for Caitlin's first steps! I greatly fear that I will miss this milestone and/or a number of others while I am away at work or commuting. Your fearless baby girl is adorable and growing up so very fast!
