These feet were made for walking

Big news happened over the week-end. My 10-month-old started walking! A very cautious, wide stance version of walking that has been progressing since Saturday. It is amazing watching this very internal struggle — her mind forcing her legs to respond — each "step" of the way. Of course, once walking is mastered, I am sure she will be running to catch up with her big sister, who would not slow down for the photo of her new favourite shoes.

A fairy day was had by all today — even daddy joined in too! I am sooo glad to be home for these moments. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who does the "dirty" work so I don't have to. Isn't he something?

My baby hat is finished. This represents my second completed work from a pattern. It is very satisfying seeing it completed. I am going to "whip" up a bigger version for daughter number two.
