Totally Walking

Vera's gone from zero to sixty on the walking thing.  Just a month ago she was teetering next to the couch, holding on with one hand.  Now she walks more than she crawls.  

This past week we were in Maine for Christmas, and that probably sealed the deal.  Cousin Cameron (love that guy) was walking all over the place at Grandma and Grandpa's, and we think V just wanted to fit in with the big kids.  Its awesome.

  • Walking by herself up and down the 2-step staircase into the living room.
  • Trying to walk full upright up the full steep stairs to the second floor, especially if she has an adult's hand to hold.
  • Walking away from Mom or Dad a few steps, slowly turning around the room, realizing that she's among less familiar faces in the room, and then returning back to start.
  • Carrying toys that look comically large and that should throw her off balance.  Notably picnic basket and Ikea dog.

Mom's sleeping in

I love being a dad.  Mornings like this.
