On Saturday Chloe Jo took her first steps. This is such a big milestone for her. She doesn't want to walk if she is just on her own, but Aunt Chelle and I sat across from each other and she would take a step toward me...and then faceplant!

Another big thing that happened on Saturday is that this picture was selected to be in a book! It is going to be in the 2010 edition of The Most Beautiful Babies in America. I'm so excited that she was one of the 1,500 chosen and that there were hundreds of thousands of pictures submitted! I also was able to write a paragraph about her bit personality to be published beside her picture. This is what I wrote:

"We prayed for a baby for three years and Chloe Jo is the answer to all of those prayers. She is a high spirited little girl who is not afraid to make her wishes known. She loves to give kisses, hugs and high fives. She demands attention and loves to play games like peek-a-boo and Ring Around the Rosie. She will wear headbands and bows for hours and loves to look and laugh at herself in the mirror or in pictures. She likes to wear dresses and will run her hands over them as if to say "look at how pretty my dress is." She always wants to play with Momma's jewelry and will get really excited snd bounce up and down if Momma will put a necklace or bracelet on her. Chloe Jo is always on the move and doesn't like to hold still. She doesn't like to be messy and will not touch many foods. She will try anything, though, if you feed it to her. She loves to go to the park to swing and watch the other children play. She is a blessing in our lives and brings joy to us every single day.

"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3"
