So cool that she waited for her mommy and daddy to do that!!!
I know that if she makes my heart melt that you must be putty in her hands.
I think her and Eliot need to meet soon!!!!

That smile at the end kills me!!! We are rooting for you guys, and will be praying for Eliana to recover quickly from her cold. (although sometimes them being sick gives you extra snuggle time...)
So excited that you guys are there, and finally with your sweetie and family too.
Blessings!!!
Amy, Matt and Nyah

How cool is that! I am so happy you were able to be there and even better, catch it on video! I love the smile at the end. She looks so proud of herself. Crawling (in my opinion) is a HUGE developmental milestone. Congratulations!
