Amanda's Walking!

This week Amanda has been practicing her walking. She started out taking about six steps at a time and she's adding more steps everyday. Obviously, she falls down often, but it doesn't seem to bother her. She just gets right back up and tries again.

Tyler has been volunteering at the local church and we stopped by to visit at Vacation Bible School. They rented a bouncy house for the kids to enjoy and Amanda gave it a try.

Keeping toddlers safe and busy while helping older children with school can be a challenge. Last week, Amanda did well when we pulled her play pen close to the table and filled it with special toys. When she gets older, we'll give her beans and measuring spoons to play with in the pen. However, nap time will always be the most productive school time.

Look at her go! Those first steps are so great. Again, so adorable!

We watched this video twice already and Joshy said, "She keeps falling at the same spot every time!"
