Sept 2, 2010 - Ella walks!

The evening started fairly normal.

Ella cruises around, a little more steadily every day.

She puts less weight on her hands as she moves around.

Ella always heads for the stairs - she loves 'em!

It looks like she thought about going up on all-twos,

but elects for her standard method.

Loves the stairs...

She'll crawl from place to place,

but when she gets there, she immediately pops up

and starts playing.

She's really good on her feet.

So, we didn't really get pictures of her first steps, but she walked probably four steps from me to Jill.
We were really excited about it. I wanted her to walk before her first birthday and she didn't let me down (not that it would have been terrible if she was slower and less mobile for longer).
