We're hoping all this "walking" will lead to independent walking very soon. Kate actually took her first three steps without support on June 1st (3 days shy of what would have been her first birthday). Blake took some time off this week and we worked and worked on walking, but Kate seems to be a cautious learner who won't try anything new without being completely sure of herself. This is a pretty good trait to have, I suppose.
Our new favorite evening ritual is having Kate walk in between us. When she reaches Blake or I she falls into our arms and gives us the best hug ever. Every time I wrap her up in my arms a tiny piece of me wishes she would stay like this forever.
