She's Walking !

In her 12 month old update, I wrote that Elyssa could walk about 6-7 steps before sitting down. Since then, she has been walking a little bit more and more, but was still crawling most of time.

Early this week, there was a sudden a big improvement. It was as if she just discovered that she loved walking !! My father said she hardly crawled the whole day yesterday. She's actually pretty steady on her legs too.

I'm still not quite used to her coming towards me on two rather than on four. *Sigh*, one implication of this is that she's officially a toddler rather than a baby. As with any new milestone reached, there's the feeling of happiness (and yes -pride as well!) but there's also the little tinge of sadness that she's growing up so fast.

Here's a short clip of her walking, which hubby managed to take last night. *need to turn off volume due to the background chatter*

Way to go Elyssa!

Wow, quite a stable walk I see. Ya, once they discover the freedom of walking, you never see them crawl again, ever. That is just so amazing, isn't it?

Mommy and daddy must be so proud of her ;)
