Those of you who have been reading for awhile will remember that we announced Evelyn's first steps back in September. In October, I designed a banner centered around our excitement to see the little lady toddling around the house... only she didn't. She was quite content to stay right on her knees, thank you very much. No amount of bribery, cajoling, or dangling of cookies would do the trick so we just shrugged our shoulders and told ourselves that she would walk when she felt like it.

A couple weeks ago, we were at a big family party. Those gatherings are always crazy, loud, and full of kids running in every direction. Whether it was the kids or the smell of pizza, Evelyn suddenly stood up and walked across the living room to me. Then she turned around and walked back to her grandma. And just like that, she was walking.

It's a whole new thing, seeing my youngest baby walking around our house and I suppose it means that she's not really a baby anymore. It's a brave new world out there... and now I have two little explorers ready to conquer it.

Note: For those of you wondering, Evelyn received her boots as a gift from Willow Wardrobe. They are adorable and we just love them!
