The first step.

She weighs in at about 18 pounds, stands around 28 inches and at around 6:30 pm on Sunday, November 16th she took her first steps. 

My heart melted as I saw the pride bubble from within, she walked right to my arms and then gave me a big slobbery kiss. 

Where have the last 10 months gone? 

In 10 months I've learned more about Christs love than in my (almost) 30 years of life. 

In 10 months I've experienced pure joy. 

She applauses after each hymn in church, she never misses an opportunity to smile. She loves to eat, explore, sing and dance. 

As we approach Thanksgiving, I am thankful for so many things but mostly, I am thankful for the gift of Joy. 

Keep walking my darling, you'll do big things, you'll explore many places and you my darling can spread your joy and zest for life across the globe.  

I am so honored you took your first steps with both mommy and daddy as witnesses.
