On Easter Sunday we watched Kenna take her first deliberate steps. She had taken a few here and there going from one piece of furniture to the next, and while we knew she could do it on her own, she didn't seem so certain. Well, last week Ted, Charis and I were upstairs by the computer when Kenna stood on her own, maintained her balance, and then, with major encouragement and cheers on our part, began walking toward us with a big grin on her face. Of course the camera wasn't ready, and it took a few more attempts to capture something on video, but we did get something at least. You can enjoy a few moments by watching:
All this past week she has been standing and toddling about off and on. If she's in a hurry, she still resorts to crawling, but she loves the attention she gets when she's actually walking! She just looks so darn pleased with herself--it's way too cute!
