…steps

Standard

Tonight, our little girl took her first steps. I know this means a new world of baby-proofing, and chasing after a toddler, but for now, her parents are overjoyed…

  1. OH GIANT LEAPS FOR WOMANKIND….!

    Probably the most exciting video yet!..OMGOSH..! Called at midnight by my son to tell me to to the computer and log on to the blog…something was up for sure!!! YOWZA!!!!!!

    Iknow all babies do it…but it is such a double pleasure to watch your own children jump up and down with excitement over their child taking her first steps alone!…omgosh..my heart is so full right now and cannot express the joy and happiness for my children!

    so great so fantastic….)look out, here comes the Italian grandma..)
    so….where’s the leash????? You bought it already , right??????

    xoxoxoxoxoxox
    JOYFUL GRANDMA DELL!

  2. You guys do look overjoyed! That’s awesome!

    Emily was eating chicken from a restaurant called wood ranch. We discovered that she likes chicken there. Some new foods that we tried and she liked….black olives (I am not a fan, but she loves them) and “smart deli” turkey. It’s lunch meat that is made out of soy really. She had that for dinner last night and ate is just about as fast as she did the chicken. What type of foods has worked for you guys too? I am looking for more ideas.

  3. Grandma dell is so right in saying that nothing is more joyous to see than your own children so overjoyed with happiness. What a thrilling video. Oh yeah, good job Abby!!!!!!
    Love you guys alot

  4. Just love it!! That is what we referred to as the “drunken sailor walk”…such an exciting time. The best part is when walk in the door after being gone and they RUN into your arms. Oh, the best of times. Congratulations to all!

  5. Hey Jennifer-I can’t believe you said Wood Ranch. That was by far my fav restaurant in Camarillo. BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad, Tri-Tip (which doesn’t exist in WA), Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Roasted Corn OFF the Cob. I’m dreaming right now…

    Oh, and thanks for the tip:-)

  6. I had the joy of watching this at 2:00 this morning when I couldn’t sleep. Didn’t help the sleeping.

    I think she’ll be running VERY soon.

    Love you

  12. Oh My Goodness!! I am so excited, she is practically RUNNING! You know, you can’t stop her now 🙂 (Kaeden started out running and hasn’t stopped!That boy never walked a day in his life!)
    Abby dear, how very wonderful for you! I knew it was comming soon! Your balance is impecable!
    Erin and Josh, time to put on your running shoes!!!

  13. woohoo!!! and i have to say i especially loved abby’s julia roberts impersonation in that last scene … that sashay and pause were straight out of her walk down the aisle in “runaway bride”. 🙂 but no real surprise there – she’s got drama in her genes!

  14. Love the video. It’s awesome to get to feel like we are part of lil Abby’s life so far away. Thanks for sharing her first steps. And Erin I love the little jump move you do in the beginning of the video!

  15. Bad auntie!!! I am soooooooo sorry for just now watching the most precious girl take her first steps! I have to agree with the other posts, your and Josh’s reactions were priceless. Too sweet! Just think of the many more firsts you get to experience with your girl! Love you guys!
