We had our first step today: Mazie Bell. She has been the one really working on her skills the past few weeks, so it is deserving that she takes the first step. She took a few tentative steps first--basically stepping to fall into me. But then she tried again and took a stable and secure step. H and Whitney were there to witness the milestone.
I have since tried to get her to do it again, but she doesn't want to. I'll hold my fingers out in front of her, trying to get her to take a step and grab on to them, but she always sits down and then comes to me. When she did take that step she was near a chair and an ottoman, so I think she felt safe with those two things around her.
We were also excited for her to be the one to take the first step because Elliott rolled over first and Lucia sat up first. The way things are going now, Mazie will also be the first to walk--our little 15 pound walker.
