Daddy's Day was One to Remember!

This Father's Day was one for the books- Ellie took her first steps!! She was slowly progressing with walking. Once she started standing (10 months), she then would pull herself up holding onto furniture and toys. She loved her push toys (turtle and doll stroller). The beginning of May she started walking while holding our hands. She got very good at this. She did just this for a good month before realizing she could walk with just fingers. A couple of weeks ago she realized she was ok holding onto just 1 of our fingers. But, still she would not let go. She could stand for long periods of time, then would plop down and clap. I knew it would happen someday- whenever she was 100% ready. Yesterday was the day! Father's Day of all days. The best gift to her Daddy! It was an emotional moment- the moment she decided she would let go and go for it. 10 steps!

We started celebrating Father's Day on Friday with a picnic at the River. It was a beautiful day! Saturday morning we went out to breakfast and Sunday we had lunch with my in-laws and dinner with my parents. It was an extra-special weekend!

Ellie is so lucky to have such an amazing Daddy. He really is so good with her. He plays with her, takes her for walks, they watch cars together, he makes her smile and giggle, and he shows her so much love. I love watching them together. Ellie loves her Daddy! And I am so lucky to have a husband who is so involved and willing to help. We love spending time as a family!
