Kate can walk!

video

After a long "Cleopatra stage"- being carried around, although knowing how to walk - her majesty has learned to walk by herself! We are thrilled. Those 27 pounds aren't easy on the arms.
(Notice the healthy bribe I used.) (DON'T notice the messes in the background.)

Yay!
She is so adorable! I am very impressed with the healthy bribe.

I too am very impressed with the cucumber as a bribe. Wow! Kate is such a cutie. Do you love having a little girl? BTW...I'd love to come oever anytime for an organizing party, but we'd have to have Dallin do it...he is the one that is really good at that stuff!

LAHansen said...

One more thing...where's the mess? There is nothing messy there, maybe you need to come help me get my house in order!

Exciting day! Brooke is starting to venture out on her own now too...she takes about four steps and then remembers "0h, yeah, I can't walk yet!" and falls down back to a crawl

Love your rewards!

I love that dress she is wearing! If I ever get a girl I'm hoping my Mom will dust off her smocking machine and make me something like that. Hooray for walking babies!

Oh, how I love that fat, fat baby. I'm so glad I got to see her before she walked all the fat off.

Yay Kate! It's so cute watching her graduate from that "walking" on the floor that she does to standing up walking. I love it!! She is sooo adorable :-) And it's fun to see it on a video. Cute.

Her Sunday crawl? We call it that because she only does it when she's wearing a dress.

Yeah for Kate!

And, no, I didn't know that Ben and Stephenie were cousins. How fun.

Ben said...

Yes, she is my father's younger brother's second oldest child. But given that I have about 100+ first cousins on that side of the family, we are about as close as a family reunion every other year. We are all very happy for her!

Janie and Andrew said...

Yay for Kate! This is big! Congrats! And I agree with Leslie - what mess???

Amy said...

Kate's adorable! Jane has a Sunday crawl, too. The dress thing is just so annoying!

Jessica said...

So cute...she looks like one of yours for sure.

(But I definitely don't think I would've walked --if it took that much effort-- for a cucumber. All that exercising plus a veggie snack and she's still that fat?)
