Baby steps

Belle took her first steps without assistance last night. We were sitting on the kitchen floor, listening to Miles Davis' "All Blues" when Belle rose up and took a few short steps from me to a closed cabinet. She spent the rest of the evening power crawling.

Belle has also started spoonfeeding me and herself. She recently brought me a jar of beef puree, not for herself, but to feed me. Belle used her tiny fingers as a fork and seemed rather pleased with herself for feeding mommy.

I am actually looking forward to Belle's upcoming 15 month appointment. While Belle may still be more petite than most, she can walk. She has one tooth slowly breaking through. She has a hearty appetite for healthy foods. If I am pleased, which I am, so will the doctor.
