It is great to be able to see those first steps. Way to go. I got to witness the first steps of my grandson. I was babysitting back in June. Right before his first birthday>

Love technology. I remember tryig to get my son to say something on the phone to my mother in Germany. NOTHING. My mother didn't hear the hello and I had to empty my savings account. Now you can see each other via Skype and the like and it costs nothing. Good for grandparents. Isn't it great to watch them?

It is so wonderful to watch a little one grow and reach milestones. I am 1700 miles from friends and family and depend on my cellphone and Skype to keep up. But, of course, my 3 year old great nephew sees no reason to stay and talk to me yet. But I do get to see him briefly when talking to his mom.

Congratulations! It won't be long before she will be running...The grow up so fast. Wish I could just put them in a bottle so they stay little longer. LOL

Diane, that is so wonderful - that it is captured on their cell phone - I do hope they have a way to transfer it to their PC - mine does that and I love it - because I will have it saved now. CONGRATULATIONS - a big step in her growth.

That is great that you got to see her first steps. We are 10 hours from our grandson and I wish 16 years ago we could have had such technology. They are so sweet at that age and all ages. God bless, Judy

Aren't cell phones nice to be able to see things like that. So much more immediate information.

watch out...this is the beginning of the terrible two's. Terrible two's usually start when the child is about a year old and it ends when they are about 35 years old!!!!!LOL.
