Officially a Toddler

Clara has been taking a step or two for a while now, but she has been totally resistant to the idea that she would give up this lovely mode of transportation called crawling for the scary, tottering, high-up-in-the-air thing called walking.  Family tried again and again to get her to walk, but she stood her ground—on hands and knees!  Even 10 month old Mollie stood her up and took off on foot while 13 month old Clara determined not to take big risks (totally a girl like her own Mama!).

Until this past week, we’ll just say the 16th, when Clara was one year, one month, one week, and one day old (ha!), Clara decided to give walking a chance.  She walked to Mama, Daddy, Grandma, Granddaddy, Uncle Isaac, Uncle Adam, Titus, and nowhere in particular.  Then, the day after at church (St. Patrick’s Day) she showed her stuff and toddled all over the place, joining the little ones playing.  Wow.  I could’ve bust my buttons with pride!  But oh, my little girl is growing up!

So, today, I did my best to catch my little “toddler” in action, and this is what I got:
