First Steps

Last night Ella decided she could walk and took her first steps. As any good first time parents would, we tried to capture it on camera. Of course, this attempt wasn't as good as her first, and now we forever remember that she has a very full diaper.

Before last night I thought "first steps" was a little cliche, something for silly sentimental moms to get excited over. But I must be more sentimental than I realized because it was so sweet and I was so proud that I teared up. Silly mom.

Yay! That is so cute. I love new walkers. I think their personality really emerges when they can toddle around. Oh, I'm so excited to come next month and see all three Packer kiddos walking around!

First steps are the cutest thing ever.....I think she looks like she'll be running soon! So glad you got it recorded!!!

Aaron says,...... what's with the diaper....could they not put some clothes on her for the occasion?!? I had to laugh.....obviously SHE'S not worried about it!

al she is so cute! I will be sure to show this to my 14 month old who has no desire to walk. I have to agree with Jessica, the saggy diaper pretty much rules. (this is JJ by the way)
