May I brag a little, please?

I hope I don't come off as snooty or anything, but my 8 month 1 week old granddaughter has learned to do something new today!

She has been pulling herself up to standing and cruising for a couple of weeks now, and this morning when she was holding onto the end table and wanted to move to hold onto the couch, she let go of the end table but the couch was too far to reach so she just stood there for a good 10 seconds looking around wondering what to do...lol.

Now I'm watching her at her standing play table (the Fisher Price one with musical toy things on all 4 sides) and she is repeatedly letting go of it to stand on her own 2 feet!

Holy moly! I'm not ready for a walker yet!

Thanks for reading. :)

  • No kidding, brag away! At work, there are few of us that have kids all around the same age, so they are learning something new everyday. We talk about our kids all night! It is so fun to watch proud parents (and grandparents) gush over new accomplishments!
