It is hard to think that our baby girl is about to start walking! Just recently she started to stand on her own. Every now and then she would let go of the couch or our leg to stand by herself. Eventually she started to stand without holding on to anything. She will also stand without pulling up on anything.
This gave me an idea to see if she can take some steps. I would put her out a little in front of me. She would stand there for a minute then take one step then fall. She has not gotten to where she can take that first step with one foot and then the other foot. She will catch her balance then fall. It won't be long before she gets the hang of it to take more....Here is a video of her standing..Excuse the mess:)
Compared to Christa she is about a half a month past her on her firsts. Christa stood up well at 8 months, took her first steps at 9 1/2 months and was walking well at 10...Brea took stood on her own at 9 months, took her first steps at 9 1/2. She is doing well!
On another note we are trying to introduce her to the sippy cup. It is working well. Here is a video of her drinking from it.
