Yesterday afternoon Quinn took her first unassisted steps! Before you start looking for the video...I didn't get one yet. I desperately tried. I'll post one before you know it.
Here's how it went:
In the early afternoon at the park, I stood her up in front of me and unintentionally lured her with a blueberry. I took my hands off of her and she stood there without falling over. After about 5 seconds, she licked her lips and took two steps towards me!
Later that afternoon at home, she was holding into the couch and without warning, let go and took four steps to grab onto Riley! She adores her brothers so it's only appropriate that she walked to him.
Yay! And right at the beginning of the "average" walker window - something like 75% of kids walk within 2 weeks of their first birthday. Despite all the warnings and "you're in trouble now" comments you'll get, this just makes everything more fun as she'll be able to show you what she wants and make decisions for herself in new ways. It opens up a whole world for both of you. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Woo hoo! I'm sure Teagan will be close on her heels... Now the fun begins!ReplyDelete
