Charis -- Walking and Other Progress

Well, it's official. Charis is walking now. Okay, she only takes a few steps before falling down, but it won't be long before she's staying on her feet. David's best friend Tony happened to be in town when Charis took her first steps on March 19th. He actually got to see them before I did. Here is some video footage:

This happened on the day Davi got to have her first sleepover--4 friends stayed over. Oi, my girls are growing up.

In either January or February, Charis got her first tooth. Actually, she got a top and bottom tooth simultaneously. Then about a week later, she got the matching top and bottom tooth. She now has four on top and two on the bottom.

She's still a little thing. At her doc appointment on Feb. 15th, she was 17 lbs. 10.5 oz, and 28.25 inches tall. So cute.

We are also seeing a lot of progress in Charis as far as attachment is concerned. She has started resting her head on our shoulder when we hold her. She has also started letting me lay her back in my arms sometimes, rather than having to be upright. She's beginning to relax and cuddle a little more. I'm taking advantage of the opportunities she gives me.

This sweet baby is such a joy. I can't imagine our family without her.

Yeah Charis! I LOVE the video! I wish our families lived closer as Charis and Maura would grow to be fast buddies I am sure. She's only about 2 lbs heavier than Maura - so tiny for 1 year olds! We're struggling with Maura eating, so if you are with Charis let me know and maybe we can share ideas we are each trying to help them gain weight.
