Look who's walking...

At first cautious.
Arms reaching for me, not trusting herself to do it without me by her side. 
As the days crept by she grew brave. 
Arms stretched to the sky, her laugh cascading across the living room floor. 
And just like that she could walk.

Awe so sweet!! It wasn't that long ago that my baby girl, Jocelyn, was just learning how to walk. It's so amazing.

And now she's discovered climbing and we are SCREWED, LOL.

She is gorgeous and looks so happy. Unfortunately, my almost 13 month old is still not walking and though everyone tells me not to worry, I still keep worrying anyway.

Great shot, as always. ;)

Yay! Look at that sweet baby! Those first milestones are so precious, and it is such a gift to be present to capture them.

Saying hi from SITS! I have a 15-year old and a 12-year old so I'm way past the infant years but I still remember vividly when my son, the oldest, learned to walk. It was so exciting but it changed our whole routine. I used to come home from work and cook him dinner every night while he played on the floor happily. Then he learned to walk and I spent every minute when I got home chasing him from the family room to the front door and back. It still makes me laugh today just thinking about it. Enjoy every minute. It goes fast.

Beautiful poem and photo! My little guys just gained his confidence to take his first solo steps, also. It is such an exciting time! :)
