This baby never pulled up or 'coasted' along the edge of tables and couches the way her brother did. Instead she was determined to stand on her own two feet, usually while holding a doll in one hand and a water bottle in the other. It seemed like a perfect metaphor for her growing personality, such a grounded little thing this one. It was no surprise that when she finally took her first steps, she was able to string together quite a few. Her balance improves by the minute, it won't be long until we are all just trying to catch up. We are so proud of our big girl, but I'm insisting that she is still very much a baby!
