Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a walker.
K took her first steps a few weeks ago. We were so excited. We waited around with our phones in our hands for two days, trying to get her to do it again so that we could catch it on film. We finally did, and we were convinced that this was the "beginning of the end." That soon, we would have one energetic little girl running around the house.
Only that hasn't exactly been the case. She'll stand on her own and take a few steps here and there, but most she still enjoys scooting across the floor from point A to point B.
At first, I was a little concerned. Was there something wrong?
But then I remembered my child's personality. She is, for lack of a better word, stubborn. She's always been this way, even as a tiny baby but more so now that she's becoming a toddler. Independent. Full of attitude. I think that she just knows what she wants to do, and she'll do it on her own terms. I confirmed this yesterday with the pediatrician's office (on an unrelated check-up for a short-lived virus). We'll just have to wait for the full-time walking. She can do it, and she'll let us know when she's ready for it.
Until then, she'll continue to wreak havoc around the house on all fours. Which is absolutely fine with me. :)
