M was sitting on the couch when it happened, and I was glad that both of us were here to see it. We kept trying to get her to do it again, and she did take a few more steps before face-planting onto the floor. A little while later, she took a few more steps...before face-planting again. I think this may be a recurring theme until she really gets this whole "walking" thing figured out.
It was pretty amazing to see the first of the millions of steps that she will take in her life. Of course, I cried like a fool.... :)
Edited 10/24/11: Evie finally figured out (in the past two weeks or so) that walking is more efficient than crawling, and she is unstoppable!! I'm exhausted from chasing her all over, and I love every second of it!
