As it turns out, we may have just missed Camilla's first steps. :(

According to her sitter, Lucy, she had just taken 3 or 4 steps unassisted on the grass at a nearby park earlier this afternoon. This makes sense as lately Camilla's been standing on her own for a second before getting down onto her knees and scampering off on all fours, as well as shuffling a few paces here and there just on her knees. We'll do our best to capture this on camera and post the resulting video/pictures.

Update: In Lucy's professional opinion (formulated from working for many years with many children) some children don't like the attention they receive when they first start walking. She's observed many toddlers taking their first steps when they think no adult is looking. Being a first-time mom, I don't know this and my first instinct is to make a big deal...especially given that Camilla's 2 years old.

Hurray for Camilla!

i knew if wouldn't be long before she took the first steps on her own. last saturday, we practiced walking while she held on to my hands, she was going so fast, like almost running, i couldn't keep up with her!

thank God, Camilla's parents are young and have the stamina to keep up with her.

love,
grandma t
