Mommy & Me Monday - We Are Walking, plus a video

Aria's godmother, Silvana, has some magical powers. She turns nap fighting babies into napping pros. And, she convinces single step takers into double digit step walks. All merely with her presence. When that next milestone comes around we know whose home we are going to.

This weekend we did Christmas over at Silvana's. And, Aria stood up and walked from the dining room table towards the window. Prior to that she had only taken at most 2.5 steps - I gave her a half point because she had to take a quick shuffle step while falling onto a chair. But, not only did she walk 10+ steps, she did it several times while visiting Silvana. We even were able to snap a video of her second walk across the floor, which was probably only half as long as the first one but still just as exciting to mom and dad!

Take a look if you wish. fyi - volume is unnecessary, but you can listen to our commentary if you want. The first bit is the walking and the rest is just cuteness. Who doesn't need more cuteness on a Monday?


I love seeing Aria and Rory interacting, and they do it more and more each time we visit.

Rory lit up watching Aria. Seriously cute! Aria really wanted to steal Rory's paci, and poke her all over.

Sharing is caring.

Aria loved opening her presents from Silvana and Rory. Then she was like hm bowls... Mama says thank you for getting her some useful gifts though! Ripping off the paper is all the fun anyway.

And, my mommy and me pics for the week.

Keeping Aria out of all the things - babyproof already Sana!

More grilling with dada. This time ribs. Really really good ones! Perfect for watching the Golden Globes.

    1. I'm so ready for it! Although she didn't try anymore walking today, clearly we have to go back to Silvana's. I definitely can't picture Aria as far along developmentally as A, and they really aren't so far apart. So much to do in so few months!

    1. She didn't decide to practice anymore today. Hopefully she'll be gunning all over the place in no time.

    1. Ha, thanks. We were very excited =) Or maybe just me. ME TOO, the super tentative steps and wobbling are just so precious and fleeting.

    1. I've been waiting and waiting for the walking, thinking it will be any moment for a month at least - right after she started doing the one step sit business. I'm so glad she got brave enough to test the waters. Can't wait until she is running around like a little mad woman, or at least I say that now...
      Thanks, have a great week too!

  6. YAY for walking! Once a little figures out how to move those legs things certainly get busy, and never seem to slow down. :)

    1. Oh yeah, I feel like life is about to get nuts around here! Definitely in a good way though. I love all the milestones and developments so much!

  7. WALKING ROCKS! plain and simple! And I will go right ahead and disagree with Jenesha on photos. I've got like 5x the amount of amazing photos of Callie post walking than I did pre walking! Yes it takes a little more planning and distractions but they can do so many more things worth photography!!! Wait til words come... Callie LOVES to say "cheese" for the camera! Back to Aria! Yay walking and slow and steady wins the race. Nothing wrong with taking a few steps, taking a break and then a few more. Less falls that way!

    1. I love it! I can't wait to let her walk in the grass, or at the beach...I can't even imagine the chaos of walking at Disney. Im excited to capture it all =) Even if they are blurry! Less falls are always good - she beats herself up enough as it is. Her legs have little bruises on them, and her back has a series of bruises on them from when she sits too close to things with edges. Ugh breaks my heart.
      Words will be nuts. She points to her eye and says ahhhh, which I am totally taking as her attempt at saying eye - and it is the cutest thing. Cheese is so cute!!
