Christmas Eve Walker

For almost 1 1/2 months now Iyla has been a 'secret walker,' where she will take anywhere from 2-5 steps at a time from a couch to me, BC, or our nanny. Some babies go straight into full on walking after those first couple of independent steps- not our Iyla. She has consistently shown us she is a little one who does things in her own careful time. She won't break out a new skill until she feels absolutely confident in doing so.

And today, Iyla Grace decided it was time to walk- at 13.5 months old.

It was the most amazing thing to see her GET IT, and to see the immense joy and pride she obviously felt when things clicked. She could not be stopped! Here is video footage of our sweet girl on the move:

Needless to say, it is the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER. She would choose to accomplish this milestone on such a monumental day. If there is one thing for sure, this little lady has panache. So proud of her!
