First steps

Ever since Aliza's 15 month check up, we have been practicing walking everywhere. She went from holding on with two hands and stumbling....to holding on with two hands and walking with more confidence......to holding on with one hand and walking better...to taking her first unsteady steps today! We have been frequently saying, "Aliza walk to Mommy!" to which she often replies "No!" but today she did! We didn't capture her actual first steps on tape, both of us were so shocked she complied we didn't have the camera ready, but then we went in for round two. (Sorry about the camera angle, I have no idea how to rotate it and I wanted her feet to be visible!)

Then, that night at dinner, she continued to learn about utensils. Here she is, working with a spoon:
