Hailey has learned to walk. At first it was just a few steps around
the toys, and a few steps towards the back door. She would only walk
when I would prop her up and let her go. Her first steps were two
Thursdays ago, around the 12th.
She will take one or two steps with stiff legs and awkward
movement. Picture the bride of Frankenstein and you will have a good
mental image. After a few steps she will tire, or realize that its
faster to crawl.
Today was the first time that she showed day care what she can do. In
a week or two, as we sit out of breath on the couch, we will look back
and remember fondly the days that we could chase Hailey down without
breaking a sweat. Soon she will be too mobile for our good.
