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.
