Last week, Kyra apparently decided it was time to start walking. So she grabbed her little push walker and started using it to do the circuit from kitchen to dining room to living room and back to kitchen.
Then, two days ago, she abandoned the walker and took off on her own, five short steps across the kitchen. She was so proud of herself - she clapped and giggled and bounced on her knees. She threw her arms in the air. Then she stood up and tried again. And again.
She still can't do much more than 4-5 steps at a time. But she's on her way.
And, as neither of the boys started walking until 13 months, she can spend the rest of her life teasing them about how she started walking before she hit 12-and-a-half months, a fact that is sure to drive them crazy a few years hence.
