She's walking, yes indeed!

It's true, our little rooster is walking (more than 2-3 steps at a time anyway). She started on Monday, when she suddenly took 10 steps from one side to the living room to the other. Sophia looked so proud of herself and then promptly fell down.

Since then, she has been trying out her new skills everywhere, including the crib (when she is supposed to be napping of course). She seems to be equally dividing her time between walking and falling. She takes some pretty spectacular falls that nearly stop my heart. Most of the time, she simply pops right up and keeps going. Other times, her face suddenly scrunches up, with a noticeable silent pause, and then the most blood curdling cry comes out.

Today, she seems to have finally mastered her sippy cup and Colin somehow managed to teach her how to drink from a straw.

The best moment came when Colin came around the corner and she said "Da dee" or something really close to it. It is true that 'da da' has been her most commonly repeated phrase since we came home from China, but I really think she said her version of 'Daddy.'

Blogger is being difficult about posting photos but I will do my best.

Taking well deserved break...

Trying to imitate Daddy's ab exercises on the exercise ball.........

Try then download firefox. I couldn't post pics for 3 days and the I downloaded this and used it instead of Int Exp and it worked immediately!
Did Sophia get a haircut or is it just brushed back?? She looks so happy!
