And off she goes!

My little girl is walking! Ah- 13 months and she is off! When people tell you that changes come fast and furious, man they weren't lying! It was just yesterday where she felt comfortable and confident enough to finally let go and start exploring and I made a comment to DH that it will will probably take a bit for her to do circles, change direction and such... Well, I was WAY off with that! Let's say it was about two hours thereafter that she was walking to the center of the room and circling some choice toys and then back to the couch ("base"). Blew my mind!!
Tonight we were at a neighbor's cookout and she was all about letting go of mommy's hand and walking between furniture on their back patio. I have to admit that I was a complete helicopter parent hovering over her freaking out that she was being so brave on concrete and brick and not on carpet. I know I will loosen up but holey moley- so soon after just starting to get brave! She wanted no part of mommy's hand! This is crazy! No way should she not want to hold my hand already!!!


  1. What an exciting age! I remember when my son first started walking around. He's 3 now and I still find myself hovering...not sure that will ever completely go away after our babies become mobile. That must be in the Mommy job description somewhere. Happy chasing!

  2. Yay! My baby is walking now too! She started taking steps at 13 months but she was a fast crawler and I mean FAST! So she didn't really take off until just a few days ago. She is 15 months now. But she never let me help her, it was always herself. SO she's one of THOSE kids! yikes!
    Good luck! And Congratulations!

    I'm stopping in from SITS!

  3. What a fun time. My youngest is thirteen, so it seems like forever since we were doing this dance. Enjoy it!

    Stopping by from SITS. Have a great weekend.
