Hazel is walking!

Posted by Greg on July 19th, 2010 with tags: ,

We’ve got a walker!  Hazel started walking about a week and a half ago.  We actually missed the first time that she walked – I got home from work and Hazel’s babysitter informed me that she had taken three steps.  We were bummed to have missed it and when I passed on the word to Yenari she begged me not to get Hazel to walk while she was still at work because she didn’t want to miss out.  It was about two days after that when we saw her take her first tentative steps…maybe 3 or 4 steps at once.  A few days later she upped it to 7 steps and her tentative steps turned to excited and over-ambitious steps.  I would have gotten some photos or videos of her walking, but her enthusiasm for walking has resulted in lots of chasing her around and catching her when she tumbles to the ground.

And now, without further ado, the proof:

    Not sure on the next Boston trip – my guess is that it’ll be a business trip for me with the fam staying at home, but hopefully we’ll all make it out there sometime soon…

    Hooray Hazel! Ewan and I watched this a bunch of times together today. I was trying to motivate him 😉 I just showed it to Troy, too, and we both think it’s about the cutest thing we’ve ever seen. We hope to see her in action in person soon!
