I'm walkin', yes indeed!

These are among Sweet Pea's very first assisted steps.

I don't think this child is
A) aware of
B) accepting of
the fact that she's just 7 months old.

Granted, she walks with help - someone has to hold those little hands to keep her upright. But I don't think this is normal! I mean, it's not something most children should be able to do until 10 months. I'm simultaneously glad and terrified that she's ahead with her gross motor skills. Glad because she'll have increased independence, and I may actually be around for her first steps rather than at work. Terrified because she'll doubtless be into everything.

Apparently she takes after her momma - I skipped crawling almost altogether and went straight for walking. Sweet Pea hasn't crawled one inch in her entire life.

Just tie her laces together when you go to work; you won't miss anything. lol.

Jasmine (who's the same age, as I said) is rolling around. Can't be bothered even to stand. And I'm not encouraging her this time! When they get mobile, suddenly you can't take your eyes off them for a minute. Enjoy the immobility... looks like it's not going to last you much longer Ü

Although their wobbly little steps are SO cute! hehe.

Ha ha, yeah I was an early walker too. Thankfully Chunky was NOT! Wait til she learns how to talk full coherent sentences then it's ALL over, walking and talking, there's not stopping her!

It's both intriguing/exciting, and just awful isn't it?
I love the increased independence idea, but I'm not looking forward to the constant vigilance.
You should see how pleased she is with herself! It's adorable.
