Misses Bella took her first step last night!

My little 3 pound baby is growing up so fast!!!

(we are relieved actually...she is 17 months- 15 1/2 adjusted, but we were trying not to sweat it until after 18 months.)

I am so thrilled!
I was afraid w/ the new baby she may have a set back in that dept.
She is just too independant for that;)

Yay Bella!!

She knows how to draw attention away from her sister, doesn't she!! Watch out, Ainsley didn't walk until 17 months, but now at 18 months, she running!!!

Take care,

Kim,
That makes me feel so much better.
I try to act as if it doesn't matter, but realisticaly, it does.
Plus it will be so nice not having to carry her all tthe time.
She detests the stroller/cart, so it is backpack- which i could use forever, or hip carry.(sling)
But as it gets hotter, that gets less and less appealing.
Love, J
