She walked! Like, for real!

So it turns out that Maya can walk from the table to the couch . . . who knows how long she's been harboring this secret skill.   Clearly, she's never cared enough to get the job done before.  But tonight?  Well, tonight Dave & I were setting up her new iPad (thank you, Grandma Lainey & Grandpa Joe!) and we put on a few Sesame Street videos.

Well, that got her attention real quick.

The first time she did it we were speechless, but for the second time we had the video camera ready:



As always, if you see an empty box and a play button, just click play and the video will appear.

I just crashed into your blog and saw your videa of Maya's walk. I don't even know you people and I am terribly excited. As actual parents, you've got to be delirious with joy. Wow!
I am a nurse and do pediatric home health nursing so I really appreciate her effort.
Happy New Year!
