First Steps!

Chloe very unexpectedly took her first steps today!!! We'd thought it would still be a few weeks at least before she reached this milestone, but a couple days ago we bought her a little push-behind walker-thing. At first she had a hard time with it - it's really lightweight and scoots across my parents' hardwood and tile floors really quickly. It was kind of funny to watch her almost running along behind it as it took her for a ride. She was so not in control. :-) Today, though, she was doing much better. I couldn't believe it when I saw her slowly walking across the kitchen floor, starting and stopping at will, letting go with one hand so she could try to open doors along the way. Such amazing skill development in just a couple days! So Mike grabbed her and sat on the ground, telling me to sit across from them... She fell back and forth between us... and then she took about three good steps toward me all on her own!! I couldn't believe it. My little baby turning into a toddler! She definitely still prefers her knees, but I think we're in trouble now...
