Independence. That is just what this little one was looking for! She just turned one and is not quite walking yet, but she's a fast crawler! She did let mom and dad hold her for a few beautiful family shots!I love the sweetness captured here. At this age they don't like to snuggle as much, so I'm glad I could capture one of those fleeting moments for mom!This stage is so much fun, when they are almost walking. You can see the determination in her eyes as she steps forward.
