A Christmas Miracle: Jane's First Steps

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!!


  1. That is so special!!! I remember when both of my boys took their first steps and it's a moment you'll never forget. Hope the new year brings lots more good memories for you and your family :)

  2. So sweet! Glad it happened on such a wonderful day too

  3. That is too precious! Congratulations Jane!
