Rose has mastered the talent of pulling herself up to standing in the last week. She hasn't, however, discovered the continued benefits of bending her knees and all the great things that can be accomplished with this simple move - for instance, sitting back down or moving your foot forward without having to tilt your whole body to the side. Everyday, though, she gets more and more familiar with the proper walking motion. And yesterday, not only did she pull herself up to standing on an empty box, but she walked behind it as she pushed it across the living room floor. I could hardly believe my eyes. Luckily, I was able to capture some of this journey:
When I picked Rose up from daycare a few days ago, one of the teachers looked at Rose and asked "How big is Rose?" Rose looked at me, and with her newest version of a fake laugh she raised her arms above her head - a motion I'd never seen her do before. She seems to forget this one, too, once in a while, but I caught it before bath time. "So big!"
