My Baby's A Toddler!

Ellie took her first official steps on Monday. Since then, she's been building up bravery and taking one or two steps when she's really motivated to get somewhere. She's taken steps toward me, toward my parents, and toward a wooden spoon. She's been doing a lot of baking, stirring with the spoon in a measuring bowl. I guess she really, really wanted to bake this afternoon, because she let go of my legs and took two steps toward the spoon before she fell down and crawled the rest of the way.

So, Ellie is officially a toddler now. I haven't caught her on camera yet, but I'll be sure to post pictures when I catch her in action.
