She’s got legs…and she knows how to use them!

Hey, Chiara started walking yesterday!

She lumbers, lurches, waddles and generally teeter totters her way about, but she is definitely not holding onto anything for at least several steps!

We are trying but haven’t succeeded in taking good photos of it.

It all started last evening when she let go of my leg and took one step to reach the coffee table. Oh my god! I shrieked.

Then Luke and I stood about 10 feet apart and encouraged her to walk from one to the other. At first she held onto our fingers tightly, but would let go and then continue to walk several steps before collapsing into our arms.

When she finally reached one or the other of us, she was so excited she would clap!

Then we took out the video camera and she reverted back to crawling. Oh well. You’ll have to take our words for it! Chiara has begun to walk.
