Several Firsts



Mili has done a few firsts in the last few days. We are excited to announce that Mili has indeed taken her first step. She took that step yesterday and it was a wonderful moment (I may not be saying that when she is in a full sprint somewhere and I am chasing her.....all you moms know that will happen to me....smile). Today Mili took two steps and then later in the day after Brian arrived home from work she took another two steps and then took three more steps. I was glad she did it for Daddy. He gets jealous when he misses things during the day when he is at work.

Today we went to "Play Group" at the Mindte's house (this is our small life group leaders house). We love them and their children. Their children love Mili and Mili loves them. They have been on vacation and when Mili saw the kids she was elated. As you can tell from the pictures they have a pool and it was Mili's first time in a pool. She cried at first (not sure if it was because the water was cold or because the floatie made her lean forward). She didn't cry for long. After I got in and pulled her all over the pool, including around and around and around some more, she was a happy swimmer (pulling her in the pool was much easier than pulling her in that floatie in the house). She is also happy when just watching all the kids play (12 kids, 6 adults and one teenager). We enjoyed our day in the pool while it was a hot 90 degrees with high humidity. Mili and I were pooped when we arrived home and we both took a nap.

It is late and I will tell you more another day. Love ya lots and lots.
