Rosalie walks!

This was definitely the highlight of our Easter lunch here at our house. We were all pretty much thrilled that she chose to take her first steps while everyone was gathered around. And I must congratulate my husband on having the foresight to have the video camera rolling just in case she actually decided to do it (we've tried coaxing her before, to no avail). I LOVE that we were able to capture her actual first steps!! Right after this was taken I grabbed my cell phone and got some video on there so I could send it to my mom and sisters. Bless you, technology.

Unfortunately, since her sisters were off playing with their cousins, they missed this particular moment. But soon after I went and got them so they could see her "walking like a big girl". When I coaxed Rosalie to walk towards Emma, she turned to me and exclaimed "Mommy! It's just like a miracle!! I'm sooo proud of her!" I didn't have the heart to tell her that one-year olds usually do learn to walk, so "miraculous" might be stretching it. If proud big sister Emma thinks it's a miracle, well, then I think it is too.



My favorite parts of this video are how excited Jeremy is (pure Daddy cute-ness there) and how little miss Rosalie makes sure we all clap at the appropriate time. Melts my heart every time.

Since Sunday she really hasn't walked that much... she still prefers to just get on her hands and knees and zoom around since she's so much faster that way. But, I have a feeling now that she's figured out she CAN walk, it's only a matter of time before she's running after her big sisters like a real little toddler.

A toddler????
A TODDLER.
My Rosalie-roo is about to become a toddler!!!!!

(what an odd word "toddler" is.)

Oh lordy.
