Hannah began taking a few steps by herself at the end of October. The little munchkin became an expert at walking around rooms while holding onto furniture/walls. One day we noticed our girl being more efficient by cutting corner's and letting go for a couple of steps. Jake left us for a few days for an interview and when he got home Sunday night Hannah was ready to show off her skills. Jake and I were laying on the couch watching Hannah when she stood up at the far end of our long couch and walked to the other side of the couch (8 steps) without holding onto anything. It was so cute watching her wobble around and catch her balance a couple of times to keep going. We have been trying to catch her walking on video and this morning I was able to get a few good ones. Now for your viewing enjoyment, I introduce to you Hannah, the amateur walker:
This first video display's her ability to pivot and change directions mid stroll. In the second video she walks towards me 8 steps and then sits down. And the last video is mostly for my mom :-) She wanted me to post more video's of Hannah talking.

Jake received an interview invitation from the University of Utah yesterday. The U is our top choice, so I am soooooo relieved that we heard back from them. We are definitely counting our blessings. Way to go Jacobo!
