Pint-sized milestones

23 Oct

Ludovica took her first steps by herself on Thursday near the sandbox at Matilde’s school. She even bent down to pick up a green sand mold and, tottering a bit, stood back up. I think I must have been the first to witness it since her mom got so excited when I pointed it out.

When her dad saw her do it again on Friday night, he called Federica in to watch and we all clapped. Matilde then pointed out that she, too, could solo caminare, so we all clapped for her as well as she bounded across the room.

Matilde does get points though. Nicola took her toy shopping for her birthday (because they need more toys), and in addition to the surprisingly basic bouncy ball she chose for herself, she picked out a plastic toucan that whistles for Ludo.
