The Baby has, I suppose, become The Toddler. She's been able to walk for several weeks taking up to 5 or 6 steps at a time. Friday night Justin and I played "make the baby walk" by sitting several feet apart and sliding a toy she wanted back and forth between us. Still, she wasn't really doing more than a few steps on her own without all that encouragement.
This afternoon we had a break-through. When she was sitting and could have crawled to me, she stood up and walked and then started walking all over the room as if it required little effort. When she started to lose her balance she would stop, re-adjust her footing and go on.
Some people dread walking, but I really don't. I kind of like it. If they are going to be mobile at all they might as well act bipedal.
