Everest is 11 months old and learned to back off the bed and couch safely, and started taking small steps. On June 29, she took more than a handful of steps, and she will be a full-on walker any day now.
She loves splashing in the pool and in the backyard.
She celebrated her first July 4, by participating in two neighborhood parades.
She also met her Great Aunt Sylvia and stayed up late watching fireworks for the first time. Over July 4 weekend, she walked 23 steps, her longest stretch yet.
She still loves seating and trying new foods of all kinds. We went to a summer concert in the park together, and she tried to make the rounds with everyone in sight to taste their snacks.
