My little toddler

By | September 13, 2010

Finally, C is walking!  She’s been walking for a couple of weeks but in the last few days she’s practically given up crawling and prefers to walk.

She was quite a slow learner; at 10 months she wasn’t even pulling herself up to standing, something which the health visitor was concerned about.  Obviously she wasn’t that concerned as she was supposed to be coming back for a follow-up review at 12 months which has never happened.

So, less than 5 months later, I have a real toddler.  She still walks a bit like a robot but I notice an improvement every day. 

She loves her shoes, my favourites are her wellies.

It’s still very slow and it’ll be a while before we actually let her walk anywhere.  A 2 minute walk over to my parents takes at least 10 minutes when C is walking with me but I don’t care, I love it!  It’s so much better now she’s not ruining every pair of trousers by crawling or shuffling everywhere, and she looks so good in her wellies with a short dress on!

That’s great news! B is not walking by himself yet but will happen one: day I am sure!

Its only taken C about 2-3 weeks to go from 1 step on her own to fully walking. I’m sure it won’t be long!

Fantastic. Thats a fab photo. The little girl is the same expect that she now thinks she can run everywhere and climb anything, which results in many many bruises.

We’ve had some attempts at running but she falls after about 3 steps!

Very cute indeed. Life does get so much easier once they can walk!
