On Christmas night, we witnessed Jane take her very first steps. We had been practicing all day, but right when we would let go, she would plop herself down on her bottom. We have videos of half a dozen failed attempts. Just when we thought she was too tired to try again, she became very interested in the silver wrapper of my dad's chocolate bar. Using it as baby bait, we lured her into taking her first steps. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we did. I think we've watched this video over a hundred times by now.
I didn't intend to take a winter break, but I have to say it was nice to spend family time here in New Orleans and then a week in NYC without a laptop, well, on my lap. I'll post an update of our family friendly NYC adventure tomorrow!!
