Walker, Texas Eliza

(I totally stole the idea for the title from my friend Abby - she used to call her daughter, ViolaMae, "Walker Texas Vi" when she started walking.  Heheh.)

This weekend Eliza started using her walker all by herself!  Yesterday she was using it and I was holding the back of her PJs so she didn't fall (the walker goes rather fast on our hardwood floors), but then hubby suggested I let her go and when I did she was totally fine on her own!!  It is so adorable and makes me so proud to watch her.  My big girl!  I can't believe how quickly she has progressed in terms of walking/standing since her first birthday.  In only 4 weeks she has gone from showing no signs of being interested in forward motion (she would side-step around the furniture, but would never actually walk forward using her walker or holding on to our hands) this!

Sorry I have to link to the video - after two days, I give up trying to load it here!
