It's official, at around 10:30 this morning, Ada took two steps. I was so excited!! She has been standing on her own for longer periods of time lately, and I have tried to encourage to walk, but usually she squats or lunges forward into a crawl. Today, she took two real steps before squatting into a crawl. She did it twice more throughout the day, but she never took more than two steps at a time. She is getting more confident about letting go of things as she "cruises" around the room, so I suspect that before we know it little Ada will be toddling all over the place.
Now, I felt like the event was worth celebrating, so we went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch, and Ada had her first kid's meal. Scott and I had coupons, so the location was decided for us, but I was so excited to get her her first real kid's meal. And she ate a grand total of one chicken nugget broken into tiny pieces and a few bites of fry. Plus she couldn't figure out how to suck the apple juice out of the juice box, so maybe it's still too early for the kid's meal. I guess I was just an over eager first time mom. But, ya'll, the "prize" in the kid's meal was so great--a little hard book with a great moral--being friends with people who are different from us. And it even had little discussion questions in the back. So cute. I just love Chick-fil-a!!
So, a big day for little Ada!
