Hope started walking yesterday and today. Yesterday she risked it all when she let go of one chair and took a big, no-handed step to the next chair. Today she walked from one parent to the other, using five or six steps. She doesn't realize this is cool. She thinks we laugh and cheer just because she is so cute. She squeals and congratulates herself too, she just doesn't realize what it's for! I'll try to post video soon.
PS) Eva tells me that she taught Hope to walk (evidently they must work on it when we're not around ;).
