peer presure rules.

niki is ivy's cousin, they are a few weeks apart. on sunday niki took her first few steps, on tuesday ivy succumbed to peer pressure and started walking too.
these videos are from tuesday night. by today they are walking much better, it is amazing to see how quickly they become more confident and skilled at their new skill and it is so fun that they are both doing it at the same time.

getting better:

velzy was just a little jealous of the extra attention that the babies were getting:

so she decided that she needed to learn how to walk again too, great mummy legs:

thanks niki for getting ivy on her feet- just don't start smoking pot any time soon.

for more video action of the little walkers you can check betsy's blog.

Ahh! The little girls are all grown up! I want to be there so bad. I love that they are doing it together. And I loved your comment. No need to be appropriate for me please. I like the laughs.

I love it! Your girls are too cute for words! Nice to see some good sibling bullying going on;) Don't feel so guilty about my childhood anymore!

Man, Velzy just rammed Ivy right out of her way! So funny, a little sibling rivalry is healthy right? I think she will like having Ivy run after her now. It will keep them busy and tire them out faster!

Jennelle said...

Those were great! Ivy will be able to do a bit of blackmailing when she gets older..."Vlezy? Remember that time you pushed me down when I was learning how to walk? Could you get me another slice of Pizza?" I bet she can't wait for the day!

Anyway, ya I think a beach day next Saturday would be great! We will have to get Melissa, Chad, Betsy and Chris to come along too...and anyone else.

That's awesome. Ivy has grown up so much since she left VA as just a little blob! It's so fun that she's walking now. And Velzy looks like she's getting tall. Good to see she's still got some fiest in her!
