one step, two step...

My baby's really walking now. It's feels so strange to me that she's so grown up. In fact, my friend, Daniell, made the comment the other night that "Ruby has finally made that transition from baby to toddler"... ouch, but she's supposed to stay my baby forever! So anyway, yeah, she's walking now; and it's evident that she's feeling more and more confident with every step she takes. It's cute to watch her follow her Daddy around the house (she'll follow me around too, but typically only if I have a treat in my hand for her). She's beginning to realize that she can get from point A to point B much quicker this way, too...

Here's a little video that chronicles her progress over the past two weeks:

  • The first clip was taken two weeks ago (at my dad's house). It's of Ruby doing her crazy crawl. This crawl has become her signature over the last few months. (I'm so glad we got it on film before she stopped doing it...it's hilarious!)
  • The second clip is of her toddling around with her push cart. She used this for about a week or so (before she felt confident enough to venture out on her own.)
  • The third clip was taken just a few days ago. The only way I could even get her to take those three or four (really wobbly) steps, was by bribing her with a treat.
  • And the final clip is from this morning. Just this weekend, she really took off with it. I imagine by next week, she'll be running...?! Uh Oh, am I ready for this?

She is so darling! I love the third video where the look on her face was just tragic, like, "Mom, I'm working so hard. I really think I've earned a cracker now." She's super cute.
