Unassisted walking!

Well, she did it! On her 15 month birthday (on the 24th) Fiona decided that she didn't need my help with walking anymore, and she was ready to go it alone. She'd been taking some steps before that, and would walk a long way holding my hand, but on the 24th she started walking all over the house without any help at all. She spent about an hour walking up and down the living room and was so proud of herself!

She likes to carry something with her when she walks... first it was a little ball that rattled, then it was her cuddly monkey, but then it was her gigantic blue ball. It's really cute, but the size of the ball does cause her some problems...




Since then she's been unstoppable! She loves to walk all over the place. She got very annoyed with me at the library today because I wouldn't let her run off and climb into the fountain. I can tell this is going to be an interesting development...

What a cutie pa-tootie. You must have filmed this the same day as Perkins. OR you really need to do laundry, because it is the same cute outfit.

Best video ever! Congratulate her for me.

I love that she walks...and I love that she loves that she walks :).

Hi Lori! I did film it the same day, but I do also need to do laundry... thanks for calling me out on that ;-)

Thanks David! Every time I watch it it makes me laugh. Reminds me of that one of you on the roundabout... hehehehe.

Hi Cathy, I love it too! She is so proud of herself, and my back is much less sore!

This is clearly in the genes. James learned to walk carrying a blue plastic waste bin round with him wherever he went. We thought it was maybe a sign of his future career leanings...

Hi Mobley! That's funny. Time will tell I suppose...
