Rebecca ran for the first time today (the technical difference between walking fast and running is that when you run both feet are off the ground at the same time). She was racing with two boys down the sidewalk — one of them is four and one is three.

After several days of Rebecca walking, this is the first video I was able to get. She kept avoiding the camera until I sneaked up on her. (1 video after the jump)
