FIRST STEPS!!!

You guys, this post totally flies in the face of everything I promised you yesterday... but seriously - Ruby took her first steps tonight! Of course, the camera was rolling. She's 14 months old... certainly on the "higher-end" of the age range, but we are so proud none the less!


Immediately following her first steps she face-planted onto her two front teeth, giving herself quite a swollen and bloody lip... I guess that's just part of the walking thing.

I LOVE THIS!!

and i will have you know that my mom would tell you that they have proven that the longer a baby crawls the better they read or the faster they learn to read... it has some link to reading. i apparently did not crawl and it has no link to memory. awesome. i'll ask my mom. she's much smarter than me. we both know this.

I LOVE THAT RUBY IS WALKING!! I LOVE YOU!

You're such an amazing mom!
