Watch Out, World...

I interrupt the vacation blogs to bring an exciting Herman Family announcement. Macie is officially walking! Now, she's been taking some I'm-falling-forward-please-catch-me-before-I-break-my-face-on-the-hardwood-floor steps for a couple of weeks now, but it wasn't until our trip to Missouri that she actually took some that might be considered "controlled". So I'm marking down 7/24/09 as the date on which she officially took her first real "step".

For the record, I think my mom and dad are good luck. They were out visiting for Ivie's birthday and saw her take her first steps (ON her birthday, mind you, as if she KNEW that it was a milestone she was supposed to hit by age 1). And now they've seen Macie's first steps, too. If only they lived closer, maybe they could help with getting Mac to potty-train early...

Anyway, tonight I was able to get some video of how far Macie's come since those first real steps just 5 days ago. At this rate, she'll be running in a couple of weeks! So here you go. Some video of the cutest new walker around...
