We have a walking toddler!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Alice took her first independent steps when she was about 9 months old. Since then she has lacked the confidence to get up and just... walk! She sort of toddled a few steps now and again, often throwing herself at something soft to stop herself. She would walk holding our hands, which I think did help her confidence a lot. However,  it wasn't until last week that she decided enough was enough, I am going to walk now! And she just did.

She stood up in the middle of the room without holding onto anything and she just did it! Walked. As if she had been doing it her entire life. Since then she has been walking about constantly and wont sit still for a minute. It is amazing. She is like a little girl! I can not believe my little baby has gone forever. But I am very happy to have such a happy, lively little girl in her place!
