My baby is leaving babyhood behind.
She's been working at walking for a couple of months now, taking a few steps here and there, cruising along furniture, crawling to the wall to get up and walk along it, taking a few steps to a chair and walking along that until she could get to something else to hold onto (or crawling to the next crutch to climb up and cruise some more). Grammy bought a little pink walker stroller several weeks ago. She loves it. (So does James.)
But today, she fully prefers her feet to her fours.
She's walking all over.
She picks up her dog, Millie, and keeps walking.
She sits down. And stands back up again. And walks on.
Madelene Kate is a toddler.
(That happened too fast.)
