I came home from work today and Jeremy mentioned that Alice had figured out how to stand on her own. What?! This little love has been walking around furniture for a few months already but hasn’t shown any interest in standing solo – in fact, every time we’d coach her to stand alone, she’d just immediately flop to the ground.
I had to see this new skill in action, so Jeremy stood Alice on her feet – and she got a determined look in her eye – and she stiffened up her legs – and she let go – there she was, standing on her own!
And then she took her first steps, too!!!
I was pretty pleased she saved that wonderful moment for when I was home! 🙂
