We Band of Butlers

we few, we happy few

Was that a step or did she catch herself falling?

Monkey has been standing for about 2 months now, but has yet to take an unassisted step. She’s never really even seemed interested in it. Today, however, we played a very fun game. I would stand her up and walk a couple of feet away and sit down. She would laugh hysterically and throw her body forward, at which point I would catch her and she would climb in my lap. This game was loads and loads of fun, but no walking. Then, after doing this about 50 times, I set her down, walked a couple of feet away, plopped down, and…a step. A step before a tumble forward and uproarious laughter. Was it really a step? I was trying to decide when Daddy pointed out that catching yourself with your feet is all walking is! So maybe by Thanksgiving my little Monkey will be a toddling little Monkey. J

YAY! A STEP! ‘Bout dad gum time! When is she gonna start doing calculous? Also, I don’t consider it walking till 3 steps are taken… there is also a gray area between 3-5 steps on whether is was “lucky” or just plain talent.

If you wan’t Monkey to walk, show her Monte Python and the Holy Grail. She will start to walk quickly when she hears….. “Run Away, Run Away”………… “Keep Running!!!!!!!!!!!!”
