First Steps !!!

If we're friends on facebook this blog will be a bit redundant, but if not, read on, because it's big news! :)

Moana started walking the other day! Ok, well she took a little step on Sunday. One small step for Moana, one giant leap for mankind. Or something like that.

But then this morning I was out running and came home and Scott told me that she took FOUR steps in a row! Then later this afternoon I watched her carefully take FIVE. Tonight when Scott got home we counted FIFTEEN. It won't be long before I start taking her to the track with me on Tuesday mornings for mile repeats. Lol.

Unfortunately the battery in our camera died today so I haven't been able to shoot a video of the walking attempts. But I did get this on film... Moana jammin' out to the Country Music Awards last night on TV... Kidd Rock opened the show with his All Summer Long and Moana thought it was da bomb. Apparently she's come up with a patented new dance called The Mashed Potato (thanks Jeff and Cat!)

If you thought you couldn't recover from training before, well it's a whole new world now. Once Zach started walking he didn't stop, and now he's trying to run. You won't be able to sit still FOR A LONG time.

And that video is one of my favorites!

Absolutely adorable!! First steps, big milestone...now the trouble starts!

I remember once walking down the street and a car went by playing it's music really loudly. My son stopped where he was and started dancing in the middle of the street, really rockin' it. The folks in the restaurant nearby had a good long laugh, as did we.

Do post some walking video when you get a chance. sooooooo cute.

Yea! That is so exciting! Go Moana!
BTW, love the Mashed Potato!

Molly said...

Too cute! She's clearly having fun :) And I never knew how to pronounce her name till seeing that!

Baby dancing is my favorite!

And I second what Angela said about not being able to sit still once they are really on the go. I found that stage really challenging. Luckily, Elena has really chilled and she is a breeze to care for now. The only problem is that the crazy and exhausting stage lasted for about 6-7 months!

Absolutely adorable - makes me want one of my own! Ha! (well - not yet...) But she is TOO CUTE!!!!! Look at that smile and I love how she pumps her arms. :) Just too much!

Ha - that girl is born to boogie! Beautiful video, hope you have fun chasing her around; wonder if you can substitute "chase Moana around" for an "easy run" in your taper??

Wow! She's dancing! Makes me think we should have Nathan listen to more music.
