My baby walked today.
She's been taking a step every now and then for the past few days but it's been such a wobbly step that always ends in a fall that I didn't know if it counts. But tonight it was 4 steps in a row, on the sand volleyball court at Mesta Park. She walked toward an iphone...of course. Hey it beats the white button.Then on the way home "Slipping Through My Fingers" played on her lullaby CD (curse you Lauren!) and I broke down into tears. Ryan laughed at me. But my little girl walked today and tomorrow she'll be graduating and then getting married. Excuse me while I go cry some more.

Here is a video of some teeny steps she took afterward. video

I love this kid so stinkin' much!!!
(Now while these videos are uploading I'm reading all these blogs of moms whose kids started school for the first time today and I just want to cry thinking about Olivia being in school. My sappiness meter is shooting through the roof. I think I need to call it a night.)

I didn't mind my own kids reaching milestones, except maybe my oldest child getting married, but for some reason it is a bit sad every time Olivia grows up a bit. She is so precious! Love, Grammy (and the magic word below is "cryloo")

=o) Awesome. i know this isn't helpful or encouraging, but i definitely freaked out a lot more on Devon's first day of school than when he first walked. Just warning you. =o)

1. i love how babies look like they're on a tightrope.
2. did you call it "film"?? are you not cracking up that she may grow up not knowing what the heck you're talking about? "film, momma? what's that?"
3. tongue in corner of mouth is just too cute.
