On November 30th at 51w1d, Stella started taking a few steps at time. The first time was that morning as I tried to sneak away to shower for work. She looked over at me from her box of stuffed animals, started doing her whiny/cry, and walked right over to me. Consider my jaw dropped. 🙂
Since then, she would take a few steps here and there to get to things, but never more than a few feet worth.
Today (on December 11, 2012 at 1y3d), I got to daycare after work to pick her up and watched her walk across the room to me.
EEEK!! We have a toddler folks!
She is FULL of bumps and bruises already from her first real day of walking, poor kid. I’m sure she’ll get the hang of it soon, though. LOL
In the meantime, we just had a really nice dinner, and now Charlie and Stella are laying together on the floor watching music videos (Phillip Phillips and Adele) while I write this and feel sentimental about my baby no longer being a baby.
Life is so good.
