Baby steps

November 22, 2011

Lily is now a pro walker. On her birthday she took 3 steps. A week later she was doing 20 steps. And then the next day she was walking around the house. The whole ‘learning to walk’ stage seems like it was fast forwarded, as I never saw it coming and before I knew it she was walking all around me.

Lily took a few months to master crawling, so I assumed it would be the same with walking. Er Whoops.

It’s so cute seeing her walk around with her stiff back, chest puffed out with the biggest grin on her face. She falls down now and again. But she is getting much better with her balance and it’s incredible to see how she always gets up without complaint.

I’m now always packing shoes in case she wants to walk when we are out and about. It’s a lot tougher now to keep an eye on her though because she is so fast.

Child-proofing has gone up a notch in this household. Since she can see things at her eye level, things that were once not noticed are now very attractive to grab!

Therefore I have to use a gate which I can put up in the doorway when I need to go to the kitchen or bathroom. Every time I put it up though, she whines and protests.

Walking has definitely bought a new dimension to this whole mothering equation but it’s still so much fun.
