We've got a walker! Last night while I was making dinner, she brought her big, blue ball inside, leaned over and picked it up, and just started walking, slowly and deliberately, but also with strength and confidence. After she did a few laps around the kitchen/dining room, I decided to grab the camera and get some live footage. I love the pleased look on her face, like she's fully aware of how awesome of an accomplishment it is to learn to walk around upright on two feet.
At around the same time this evening, she picked up a toy in her room and started walking the hallway. I took her next door to show MC her new walking trick, and she grabbed a bag of nuts, and walked around MC's. For some reason, she won't walk unless she's holding something in her hands. I guess maybe it helps her balance. I should get her one of those bar thingys that acrobats use when they walk the tight rope.
The day before her walking debut, I took this video of her pushing her shopping cart around the house.
