She's Walking!!

It's been a long time coming, but last night Anna finally walked. Out of nowhere, she stood up and took about eight steps across the room -- as though she'd known how to do it all along, but was just holding out on us! I managed to catch a few awkward steps on video this morning. This video also shows her practicing one of her new favorite words: no. She says "no", "down", and "sit" all the time now.

In other news, Josh and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary on Saturday night. (Unfortunately, we forgot to bring a camera to document our rare night out.) Josh's cousins Laura and Kimmy came to visit for the weekend and watched Anna for us while we enjoyed an over the top dinner downtown. Sometimes it's nice to be married to a spender!

Our Beach Babe

This summer we're taking advantage of having some really nice beaches within 30 minutes of our house. Anna loves everything about these day trips to the shore -- the ocean, the sand, the people, the snacks... Her face in this photo says it all. She's completely fearless. Even a getting toppled over by a wave and inhaling a mouthful of salt water doesn't phase her.
