...just a few more happy shots from the pretty afternoon last week when we had our walking practice... and that one of my mommy and my baby girl? gosh that will forever be a favorite photo of mine! i am so blessed to have that woman.
and guess what else?! all that walking practice has started paying off! yesterday evening, miss maddalena took four. big. steps. all on her own!!! and then she took a few more bonus steps to her daddy. gosh, i was already all sorts of emotional yesterday about it being july and maddalena turning one this month... and then she starts walking! i wanted to laugh and cry and curl up in a little ball and pause the whole world for a minute. i am so proud of this girl, so so proud! but i'm never gonna be ready for her to get all grown up on me! so, anyway. i had my iphone handy for the big moment [no surprise there], and i caught a little video of this sweet and special moment in our house :)
*music is "gone away from me" by ray lamontagne... and oh, please disregard our most disheveled room in the house, even though that broken record player makes such a lovely addition to the backdrop :)
