We have a bedtime routine. Most days… I give Dia a bath, sing to her, read to her, feed her and she sleeps. Most days… The days when bath time somehow turns into “I am all alert now”, I indulge and play with her. So the other day, I put her in her crib and stepped out for a minute. When I returned, this is what I see… Are you kiddin’ me? Didn’t we just start crawling? Oh yeah… we’re standing now! And there is no fencing us.
And now, that’s all she wants to do. Hold on to something and stand up. My mom tells me that my brother started walking when he was 9 months old!
Check out this cute video I took the next day. I have watched it at least 20 times!
And needless to say, we adjusted the level on her crib so the mattress is way down. That doesn’t stop her though.
