Nadya's First Step

In celebration of nadya's first step on earth, we present this video (above) to dear family and friends! Needless to say, this important milestone was recorded in our "Little Milestones" Kit.

It is interesting how different Nadya's first step was in comparison to Vera(video below taken 2 years ago). Nadya seemed so ready for this moment, even though it was her first. Maybe it is because we never hurried her, unlike Vera, when we literally forced her to take her first step one day after her first birthday when we decided "it was time". I guess we were really anxious back then. This time with Nadya, you can say we are the super chilled parents who simply waited till she was ready on her own. No pressure. Ahh...the benefits of being the second born.

Vera's first step at 12 months -Nov 2007

These videos always bring warmth to my heart... seeing how our babies develop, etc. Thanks for sharing!!

I totally agree... I think with the first, we are always so anxious about them meeting their developmental milestones, that it is "time" to walk, toilet train, etc.

With the 2nd one, I supposed we realised that one day, they will eventually learn how to walk, jump, etc. So no hurry! I guess we improve as parents along the way... =)

My little one hasn't taken her first step, yet, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Great video!
