Mommy Monday: Baby Steps

There. Now I’ve contributed to the clogging of the internet with another pointless youtube video. Don’t I feel special.

But I thought that readers of this blog might enjoy seeing Minnow’s newfound ability to walk. She was starting to take tentative steps in mid-December, but the fluid in her ears really set her back for a while. Nonetheless, the urge to walk is strong, and by New Year’s day she was able to walk from one side of a room to another.

    Oh, that’s absolutely adorable! (I suddenly have the urge to convert all our baby videos to digital format)

    Oh wow. Love the little glam-shot at the end too, like it was all a performance for the camera.

    Go Minnow!

    The next year is really an exciting one with the physical and language developments. Be sure to notice and enjoy!

    thats awesome! My son started walking at 9 months, way too early for us! My daughter is now 9 months and walking around the furniture, but has yet to make the plunge without support.

    Doesn’t having kids make science seem a little less serious and tolerable?
