first steps

Last Sunday, June 28, Gabrielle took her first steps (plural--she'd been taking one step for a couple of weeks, but no more than one unless there was something to hold on to). After a week's practice, she is getting pretty good. She still prefers crawling (it's faster) but she's taken up to 8 or 9 steps at a time now. I love how cute they are when they're first starting out...arms out wide to catch themselves, bent a little at the knees, ready to plop down or fall forward after just a few steps.
