BAILEY IS WALKING!!!!!

Mine and Melanie's lives have changed dramatically since Bailey was born a little more than 10 months ago. Today, April 26, 2008, the winds of change have once again decided to blow in our direction.

It started last night when we were encouraging Bailey to take a couple of steps toward the two of us in the bedroom floor. She could stand on her own fairly well, but whenever she tried to take a step momentum and gravity took over and she would end up taking one or two more quick steps as she fell into our arms.

It seems that practice quickly makes perfect, though, because today, while at Ava's (Bailey's friend from across the street) first birthday party, Bailey actually began letting go of our hands and walking! After we got home Bailey decided to take a nap (b/c birthday parties are tiring) and then strut her stuff some more.

Check out the videos below:

Bailey is doing great for her first day of walking. These videos have already been watched several times since last night. She is so adorable. I love her so much. Can't wait to see all of you again soon.

Hugs and kisses,

Melanie! The videos are so cute. I love when she fell flat and didn't even cry. And when she hit her butt and looked like she just scored a touchdown! So cute. Ya'll make a beautiful family!
