Driving under the influence


... of diluted apple juice! Andrew and I are constantly shaking our heads these days and saying things like, "She's getting to be such a big girl" and "Where did our baby go?". In addition to being able to get on and off of her scooter car by herself (and making it actually go forward), using the sippy cup without the handles, and climbing up the stairs to the slide at the park, Lucy took her first steps this weekend!

She is so very proud of herself and displays the biggest smile when she gets brave enough to let go of our hands and take a step or two on her own. She still prefers to crawl and "cruise" the furniture right now, but her balance and confidence is growing daily. I predict we'll have a full-time walker on our hands any day now. It's such a joy to see her becoming more independent, even though I fear that the days of "I do it" are just around the corner. :)
