Walking For Real (updated with video)

I can finally say it's official, we now have a walker on our hands. Liya started walking across our living room last Tuesday and hasn't stopped since! Liya basically went from not walking to walking across the living room one day. After she took her first ten steps that I captured on video, she quit attempting to walk or even stand by herself, though she mastered the art of walking while holding onto someone's finger and running while holding onto the furniture/walls. It is so astonishing to see how much her walking improves each day now. Just this evening she walked from our couch to the bathroom without falling down, probably 30 or so steps. She pretty much can get to wherever she wants by walking now. Amazing how fast that happened!

And here's a video for grandpa :)

I think these are the only pictures we have of her really smiling (not goober smile) so I had to post them!

Those are a couple of FANTASTIC smiles (but that smiling Elmo lurking in the background sure is scary)!

It looks like you've used a different camera for those two shots. They turned out nice. And why not post the video of the walking you captured?

Go Liya!!! I love the last photo where you can see her two bottom teeth sticking out. CUTE!

I can't believe how much she has changed already! She just keeps getting cuter and cuter!
