It Happened On A Monday

It happened today...

SHE TOOK HER FIRST STEPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Now granted, They were only very small steps - but nonetheless - it happened today! I am so excited and VERY proud!

The day started with her doing LOTS of playing while I tried getting ready to make a trip to Costco, party store, grocery store, and Erik's work. I got ready and Erik's sister Amy came down with her boyfriend and we all piled in to go to Costco. We arrived and saw that they were closed. I didn't think they closed for Labor Day and such but they did. We then went right across the street to the party store to get a few more things for Saturday.

After the errands we went back home to visit some. My friend Trina and her daughter Jessica came over as Amy and her boyfriend were leaving and we played a bit. As we were getting ready to go visit Erik at work...that's when it happened. We were literally getting ready to get in the car when she did it!

Amazingly I didn't cry but my adrenaline kicked in and I was beyond happy! Trina grabbed the video camera because I was too anxious to hold it and she filmed.

Now what I am going to share isn't the best quality. It is video of video. We have a video camera that is HD and our computer does not support it AT ALL. I should have grabbed the digital camera (which is what I use to upload video on here) but I was too engrossed in what I was witnessing to think about it! The volume isn't working on the tv either so you don't hear anything but that's okay...no need for sound! :)

So here you go...her first steps ever...and they were caught on film...








The videos may not work or may take a minute to finish uploading but HOPEFULLY you'll get one of them to work! If not...I'll try it again later! :)

Aww! I love the first video. Her little toes going up and down to hold her balance. What was almost better, in the 2nd one, was the way you whipped your head around to look at the camera when she took that one step, you had the biggest smile on your face!!!
