walking in the garden
On Tuesday night Scarlet surprised us with walking. At first I wasn't sure if this was real because a few weeks ago she had taken 8 then 13 steps but, then stopped only taking maybe 4 somedays. But, Tuesday she was ready. I had blown up some balloons and was throwing them across the room and asked her if she would get one and bring it to me. Normally, when I suggest her to walk she turns her head to one side and says 'no' pretty defiantly. So, I was surprised when she did walk and then she just kept going back and forth in the room. We quickly grabbed the camera and made a little video.
She is now walking all over the house and it is so unbelievably sweet. I forgot what babies look like when they start walking and how proud they feel. She has been grinning and giggling as she goes.
I took some photos of her outside today. She took a walk along the flowers stopping to admire them.
I recently knit this sweater for her. It is so incredibly soft and I love this color on her. It's Malabrigo Yarn in Damask Rose. I have another sweater on the needles for her right now. Little sweaters are so satisfying and I may have to do one or two more. I also have plans to start a new one for me soon and if I ever find the pattern with my notes to finish one I started last Fall.
