First Steps

Andrea took her first unassisted steps today. At least, the first that I saw. I'll have to probe to learn whether she took any this past week at school.

Andrea's first steps were away from me; Dylan's first steps were toward me. After her nap today, I set her down on the floor. On her feet, not in a sitting position, since she has a strong preference to be standing. She balanced for a few seconds without support. Then, she took a couple of steps toward the coffee table, which was only a couple of steps away.

Andrea took quite a few more steps this afternoon and evening. She first played the game of take two steps from the coffee table to the couch, where Mommy was sitting, and fall into Mommy's lap. While Dylan and Geoff were still coloring Easter eggs, she took some steps around the sunroom. I counted five in a row at one point. She definitely continues to be a bit more reckless than Dylan ever was, which means I need to stay close enough to prevent face plants.
