Let me see you 1, 2 step*

We have an announcement!


(Maya just needs to proofread the sign first)




That's right, people!  Maya took her first steps today!



Oh, it was so much fun!


We were on the floor.  I kept standing her up and letting go, then asked her to step towards me---and she did!  (And collapsed on to me)  Then we did it again, then again . . . and then I grabbed my cell phone to try to get it on tape for Dave :) 

Warning: To watch this video, you must hold your head (or computer) at a 90 degree angle.  Also, if your volume is up you'll hear me screeching a bit.  But it's totally worth it.




(As usual, if you only see empty space with a play button under it, click "play" and the video will come in)
