10 Steps

It is an awe inspiring moment when the little bundle of chubs who was just shortly an infant in your arms takes off on those roly legs. Of course the moment only lasts a brief second before *CRASH* another head into the linoleum.

Scarlet officially set her own record this morning by taking 10 steps all on her own. She has successfully accomplished the two and three needed to get her from toy to next standing point. But this morning I sent her off walking to her dad and as dad kept backing up, Scarlet kept walking. Some of you might ask, Kacey of course you got those momentous moments from your first child on video or you at least took some pictures? You know when your child decides to make great strides 5 minutes after you should have already left for church, who's fault is it when it doesn't get recorded?! I'll just tape the next time and pretend it was the first.

We got to hang out at Sam and Kyles yesterday and to our great luck Grandma Earl drove into town and joined us! It was a great evening. We carted the 3 babies to a little mexican eatery and had a good meal then put the kids down for the evening while we played some games. Jon introduced us to a card game called Mao. You start the game not knowing how to play and the goal is to learn them as you go. Grandma is NOT a fan of Mao. She graciously put up with the first three rounds but the fourth round was more than she could handle and her cards did not leave the table in front of her :) We had a great time.

Pictures of something interesting to come...

How fun that she is starting to walk!! I don't think I got Cooper's first steps either, but close to the first. Now soon she will be running and you will have to bolt to catch her!!

OK, so we were checking out the blog and watching the video of Scarlet walking a few weeks ago, and Livvy thought it was the funniest thing she had ever seen. She is always asking to see Scarlet walking. The other day, Cara and Livvy were driving in the car when Livvy asked a wonderful 3 year-old question, "Why does Scarlet live in our computer?" A great moment.
