First Steps

Eliana took her first independent steps tonight. She was standing up leaning against Leif when she leaned forward and took two and a half steps to me. It surprised both of us, especially since she can't stand for more than 3 seconds on her own. But she took those steps and was VERY proud of herself, shrieking and giggling in excitement. We were pretty excited, too, clapping and cheering her on.
